Is it a matter of imperative form ? In this case it should be indicated in some way.


Well, assuming the English text is a full sentence (which is not always the case here), it should be. Just a verb with no subject is generally imperative in English.

Soma gazeti (to one person) Someni gazeti (to plural peope)


Yes, I was doing this repeating very quickly and I didn't look what is the main thema. :) English it isn't my first language and I don't react automaticaly at the text. And this story about singular - plural...Haaa, haa, I am out of patience =D
