I'm the captain now!
Any reason this is uită-te as opposed to te uită?
It's about time. "Uită-te" is imperative (it's a deman, order) but "te uită" is present.
"Now you look at me" should be an acceptable answer.
So to make an order, is it a general rule to reverse the order of the verb and the preposition? Just curious
Yes, but "te" is not preposition, it is a short form of the pronoun.
