[quote=“Phil H, post:13, topic:2378”]I’m afraid you are mistaken Scherp. Wow, I never thought I’d be correcting you on a matter of language :o
Vete is the familiar you (tu) imperative form of the verb irse which is, as I think Topo mentioned, to go away.
Vaya is the imperative form of ir (to go) in the third person singular or polite (usted) form of you.
Vayas is the present subjunctive of ir in the familiar form. Or, in the negative, can also be in the imperative. So for example. “Go with God” (in the polite form) would be Vaya con Dios. “Don’t go with God” (in the familiar form) would be No vayas con Dios. But Vayas in the imperative can only be used in the negative so either way, Vayas con Dios is incorrect grammar.
Hope that’s all clear ;D
Now I just need Julio Alberto to come on and tell me I’m talking rubbish.[/quote]
Gracias señor !
I was never a happy marriage, Spanish and me …
(Makes me think, by the way, of one of my favourite TV series, Dad’s Army. Captain Mainwaring (I’ve got some highly trained men here!) and Sergeant Wilson were my favourites. When Mainwaring made a mistake, and was corrected by Wilson, he inevitably would say : “Okay Wilson, I was only testing you.”)
So: Okay, Hardcastle, I was only testing you …
