Almorzar in the subjunctive present tense is not only an -ar verb but it is also a stem changing verb

Stem changing verbs have a change not only in the ending but also on the stem. In this case acordar is a o → ue stem changing verb. That means that the o in the stem changes to ue in all forms except for nosotros and vosotros.

Yoe
es
Él / Ella / Usted (Ud.) e
Nosotros (as)emos
Vosotros (as)éis

Almorzar as an Imperative Affirmative Command

The imperative Affirmative commands are used to tell someone or a group of people what to do. We do not give commands in the 1st or 3rd person which is why yo, él, ella, ellos, and ellas have been removed for this tense.

Almorzar is irregular when forming Imperative Affirmative Commands. 

Mostly we will give commands or tell someone we treat as (tú) what to do. Let’s learn how to conjugate that part first. 

To find the Affirmative Informal tú command of a verb follow these steps:

  1. Find the form of the verb in the present tense. 
  2. Take off the “s
  3. That will give you the affirmative informal command of a verb in the tú form. 

Reminders: Stem changing verbs should continue to have the change in the stem.

For example, The affirmative informal tú command of the verb almorzar  would be almuerza
