    Verb
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Use it the same way you do other verbs in commands.

    Please open the door.
    Call me when you can.
    Pass the salt, please.
    Click here.
