When ‘Tu aides moi’ becomes ‘aide-moi’, the ‘s’ in the verb ‘aide’ is lost, as in the other example sentences. Does that mean that in affirmative imperative sentences the verb is conjugated in the ‘il/elle/on’ form? 

Thank you!

Hi Sara,

It is the rule that in the case of regular verbs ending in ER ( including aller) the final 's' will be dropped in the 'tu' form of the imperative -

Tu m'aides -----> Aide-moi!

Take a look at the following Kwiziq lesson for more information :
