The problem is that English doesn't have third person imperatives. I
always tell my students that it can be translated as "let him unfasten..."
but the problem is that that sounds like a permissive rather than an
imperative. But so what!

Subject: morphology question
Excuse me for asking what I suspect is a very basic question, but
according to a paradigm table I have the verb ending -ETW indicates a
3rd person present active imperative.
I didn't know there was such a thing... What does it mean? How would
you translate, say, LUETW?
