Commands with reflexive verbs

If the verb is reflexive, you have different rules for the reflexive pronoun depending on whether it's a positive or negative command.

  1. Positive commands: Place the reflexive pronoun attached at the end of the command, and accent the second-to-last syllable. In addition, eliminate the final "s" of the command as you attach the pronoun. For example, levantarse would be levantémonos, not levantémosnos.
  2. Negative commands: Place the reflexive pronoun before the command.
Verb POSITIVE COMMAND NEGATIVE COMMAND
acostarse acostémonos no nos acostemos
despertarse despertémonos no nos despertemos
