The verbs drive and ride do not have forms of the imperative. Forms, such as drive, drive, drive, continued, does not exist. Linguistic norm is the only recognized form go.
This apartment can accommodate those looking for a simple answer to a specific question — how?
The “extreme” or “last” — how?
This is true, this information is recorded in dictionaries, though without well known.
However, knowledge of the rules does not give and can not give a full representation of the language structure: such knowledge is sufficient in order to have relative competence, but very little in order to truly understand and know their language. To be a native speaker and to understand it is not the same thing.
So what happened with the forms drive, drive, drive, continued, and how can we deny their existence, if you ever hear these words? The fact that they do not exist only for the strict, conservative literary norms, but you can find them in the dictionaries marked colloquial and vernacular. This fact alone refutes the absence of such forms in the language.
Is there anything in your environment at least one person, speaking is go go? And how many of those who correctly use the verbs to wear and to wear? Drills, cakes? The best, not the best? Lublin is Lublin?
Why is this happening? The reason is not rampant illiteracy, incurable disease of the Russian language, which “have forgotten”.
How to write “You” capitalized or lowercase? How?
The fact that along with the language norm and the norm there is a literary concept that refers to the established ways of using language — language usage. We won’t avoid the terminology for this complex (at first glance) word is hiding a very important phenomenon that good friends, if you want to understand the language.
Language usage (from lat. usus — use) is a linguistic custom that is common for speakers of a particular language the use of language units, which consists of our speech — Bereket, pignol, salkera, victory and our favorite ride is go.
Dictionaries are instructed to eat normal. But we don’t use dictionaries to communicate because we speak in their native language — and speech practice it, that is the customary usage. And he is also in a sense the norm. In the dictionary fixed rate drills, but we’re talking drills — this is the norm for our use. (Remember that the norm is not only a rule, but the average magnitude.)
“Ringing” or “calling”. How?
If you use the form, go is go, it certainly would be a mistake from the standpoint of strict literary standards. But the word is established in the linguistic tradition and is used by almost all around you. “Well, what else is criminal”?
The use of the words ed and out will not harm the Russian language (as it does not harm the floor instead of drills drills and more), can not be said about misunderstanding and language and dismissive, superficial condemnation of natural phenomena.
