A. Drop the infinitive -vu&, is to get an imperative form of a verb. Examples:
1. rme=, rm.
Ramesh, (you) play.
2. nIla, kerI kap.
Nila, cut the mango.
However, if the addressee are more than one use plural marker -Ao with the verb. Examples:
3. rme= Ane nIla, kerI kapo.
Ramesh and Nila, (you) cut the mango.
4. mIna, nEna Ane inlIma, rmo.
Mina, Naina and Nilima, (you) play.
Use plural to be polite. Examples:
5. mInaben, rmo.
Minaben, (you) play.
6. rme=-a;, kerI kapo.
Rameshbhai, (you) cut the mango.
Gujarati has future imperative forms also. We use such forms to request to do things in future. Examples:
7. mIna, rmje.
Mina, play (future).
8. mInaben, rmjo.
Minaben, play (future).
In present and future imperative forms, we also use -ne, a request form. Examples:
9. mIna, rmne.
Mina, please play.
10. mIna, rmjene.
Mina, please play (future).
11. mInaben, rmone.
Minaben, please play.
12. mInaben, rmjone.
Minaben, please play (future).
