Till now you must have seen how a Hindi verb modifies to express different tenses. The root of the verb gets different suffix according to the tense in which it is being used.
The imperative form of a verb is not very different.
Let us learn this with examples.
Verb : आ-ना (aa-naa) = To come
Polite imperative form : आ-इए (aa-iye) = Please Come
If you want to request someone to enter your room, you’ll say
आ-इए (aa-iye) in Hindi.
the root of the verb gets suffix -इए(iye) .
Similarly for the verb : to go = जा-ना (jaa-naa)
The polite imperative form will be : जा-इए (jaa-iye) = Please go.
Now for those verbs which have two or more letter in their root form:
for example :
देख-ना (dekh-naa) = To see
The polite imperative form becomes : देख + इए = देखिए ( dekhiye) = Please see
बैठ-ना (baith-naa) = To sit
The polite imperative form becomes : बैठ + इए = बैठिए ( baithiye) = Please sit
One must keep in mind that this imperative form of Hindi Verbs is always used with the pronoun “आप (aap)”.
आप बैठिए (aap baithiye) = (you) please sit
