Jim, no suffix is used for a command to singular male (a boy or a man).
The suffix i (yod) is used for a command to a singular female (a girl or a woman).
The suffix u (vav) is used for a command to a masculine plural group.
Only in the first unit, the rarely-used feminine plural suffix -na was introduced in the sentence Azorna li, banot...Help me daughters...maybe useful for understanding the language in fairytales.
This is the ninth and final lesson in this imperatives unit, so if you haven’t understood what the suffixes mean, you’ve lost many opportunities to fix the meanings in your mind. I recommend that when you first come across a highlighted word in the first sentence of a new skill, you go to Pealim and see it explained. Then go back to Pealim each time something doesn’t make sense until you catch the way the conjugations work. And even then you will probably need help with how the words are pronounced.
Just google Pealim and it comes up right away. It’s a little confusing to use at first; I have latched on to the wrong meaning many times because I didn’t read carefully enough, but this is really a tremendously valuable site. There is no way I could do Duolingo without a site such as this.
Lean on Pealim or Forvo or doitinhebrew or morfix or something, or you will be stumbling in the dark.
