    Re: GO get this

    Are these following type sentences of this type grammatically correct ?
    The first two are OK as informal English imperatives (commands).

    They mean 'Go (out) and get this' and 'Go (to the market) and buy vegetables'.

    The third is incorrect because you wouldn't say 'Go and buying fruits'.

    It's not a natural-sounding sentence.
