Tu das nicht


I have just seen this sentence “Tu das nicht”.

Why do we shorten the word “tun” here?


Hallo RexV,

In this instance, tu isn't really a shortened form of the verb tun "to do"; rather, it's a conjugated form. This is a command, so it's conjugated for du "you" in the imperative form.
