    Accent on Imperative forms

    I had as a rule that imperative forms were stressed as the 2nd. person singular is, sometimes I see that like the 3rd. person plural. No difference. But I find that sometimes this rule is not so regular. Finally I have found that are exceptions to this rule that must be kept in mind. I ask: There is some, though not very strict rule for this matter, Accent of Imperative?
    Thanks

    The imperative stress falls on the same syllable as it does in the first person singular.

    shifting in pres. tens:
    ношу́, но́сишь носи́

    fixed on stem in pres.:
    чита́ю, чита́ешь, чита́й
    изба́влю, изба́вь
    откро́ю, откро́й

    always on ending in pres.:
    веду́, ведёшь, веди́
    говорю́, говори́

    I can't think of any exceptions. Look at
    е́ду е́дь е́дьте
    even! (it's not grammatical, but people say it.)
