When you command someone to do something or you request something this is known as an imperative. Examples include :
Lets go out to dinner.
Run for the hills!
The 2 most common forms of an imperative are the formal using Sie and the informal form based on du. Examples are:
Kommen Sie her! (come here! - formal)
Komm her! (come here! - informal)
The formal (Sie) version is pretty easy to work out. Just use Sie and the correctly conjugated verb and the basic sentence structure verb + subject + ... + (!)
The informal version is a little trickier since you do not use the pronoun du in the sentence, you merely use the du form of the verb without the -st and the sentence structure verb + ... + (!)
Steh auf! (stand up!)
Schrei nicht so laut! (don't yell so loud!)
Although in most cases it may look like it, don't assume the form of the verb used is the same as the stem - irregular verbs may have a different conjugated form for du than is seen in the stem form.
