Hello,

This is from Molière, Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme. The full sentence is: "Venez, entrez dans cette salle, et vous reposez là, en attendant qu’il vienne."

My question is, why is it "vous reposez"? Shouldn't it have been vous reposer? Or at least reposez-vous?

Thanks in advance.

    You can have a look at what Grevisse writes (§269 R2) about the coordination of imperatives as hendiadys.
