I thought commands were always in the third person singular? If I go onto wordreference:

presente

da
d
demos
dad
den

If I said to someone "buy it" (they're not a friend of mine, so I'm not using the t form i.e compra)
Wouldn't that be comprelo? Is there a special rule because there's no yo form in the imperative?

presente

compra
compre
compremos
comprad
compren
I seem to remember there being multiple command forms for t and usted forms, and they change in the negative as well, which is why I just make suggestions at this point -- I haven't mastered enough to tell anyone to do anything!
