Transcript

  • 1. The First-Person-Plural Imperative (El imperativo de la primera persona del plural) No, no lo De acuerdo. operemos Primero, ¡Vamos a todavía. hagámosle unos operarlo de análisis más. inmediato! ¡Ay, mi madre!
  • 2. The imperative of nosotrosThe expression “ir a” plus infinitive, as wealready know, generally indicates a future activitythat someone will engage in. Los niños van a tener una fiesta mañana. The children are going to have a party tomorrow.
  • 3. The imperative of nosotrosHowever, one of the most common uses of thenosotros form of this construction is to suggest thatsome persons, including the speaker, do somethingtogether. ¡Vamos a tener una fiesta mañana! Let’s have a party tomorrow! Notice that this usage is emphatic and is often accompanied by exclamation marks when expressed in writing.
  • 4. The imperative of nosotrosBut an alternative way of making such suggestionsis to use a nosotros command form, that is, thepresent subjunctive for nosotros. ¡Tengamos una fiesta mañana! Let’s have a party tomorrow! Curiously, the long form (vamos a . . . ) is more frequently used.
  • 5. The imperative of nosotrosHowever, the negative nosotroscommand is formed exclusively with . . . ¡No tengamos una fiesta mañana! Let’s not have a party tomorrow!“No vamos a tener una fiesta mañana” is a simplestatement, “We’re not going to have a partytomorrow,” and cannot be used as a command form.
  • 6. The imperative of nosotros As with all command forms, object pronouns are attached to the end of the affirmative forms and precede the negative commands. Busquemos al enfermero. Let’s look for the nurse. Busquémoslo. Let’s look for him.In affirmative commands with an attached pronoun,an accent mark is added to maintain the originalstress.
  • 7. The imperative of nosotrosAs with all command forms, object pronouns areattached to the end of the affirmative forms andprecede the negative commands. No molestemos a la paciente. Let’s not bother the patient. la No molestemos. Let’s not bother her.
  • 8. The imperative of nosotrosWith reflexive constructions and the pronouncombinations selo, sela, selos and selas, the finals of the affirmative subjunctive command formis omitted before adding the pronoun(s). ¡Vamos a lavarnos las manos! ¡Lavémos nos las manos!
  • 9. The imperative of nosotrosWith reflexive constructions and the pronouncombinations selo, sela, selos and selas, the finals of the affirmative subjunctive command formis omitted before adding the pronoun(s). ¡Vamos a dárselo! ¡Démos selo!
  • 10. The imperative of nosotros With the verb ir, the indicative form is used as the affirmative command—never the subjunctive. ¡Vamos al cine! Let’s go to the movies! ¡Vayamos al cine! Nor do we ever use the ir a + infinitive command form with the verb ir. ¡Vamos a ir al cine!“Vamos a ir al cine” is a simple statement—“We’re going to go to the movies.”—not a command.
  • 11. The imperative of nosotrosHowever, the negative ir command reverts, asyou might suspect, to the subjunctive. ¡No vayamos al cine! Let’s not go to the movies!
  • 12. The imperative of nosotrosThe reflexive form of the verb, irse, follows asimilar pattern. ¡Vámonos! Let’s get out of here! ¡Vamos a irnos! ¡No nos vayamos! Let’s not leave!
