be "something"


I just read KGT *again* :-)
and I saw a line on page 117

"Generally, when a verb describing a state of being is used in the imperative form, the suffixes 'egh and 
-moH are used as well: yItuj'eghmoH."
{taD} "be frozen" is an exception, when it means "not move", it is used like a verb of action.

So this means that every time I want to tell somebody to be something, I have to add {-'eghmoH}.
To tell someone "Be (adjective)!" I need to say "cause yourself to be (adj.)!".
