Can anyone tell me if I am giving the correct present active imperitive form (singular and plural) of the following?

venio (4th conj) - veni (come thou), venite (come ye)

duco (3rd conj) - duce (lead thou), ducite (lead ye)

voco (1st conj) - voca (call thou), vocate (call ye)

doceo (2nd conj) - doce (teach thou), docete (teach ye)

laudo (1st conj) - lauda (praise thou), laudate (praise ye)

dico (3rd conj) - dice (say thou), dicite (say ye)

sedeo (2nd conj) - sede (sit thou), sedete (sit ye)

ago (3rd conj) - age (drive thou), agite (drive ye)

facio (3rd conj) - face (do thou), facite (do ye)

munio (4th conj) - muni (fortify thou), munite (fortify ye)

mitto (3rd conj) - mitte (send thou), mittite (send ye)

rapio (3rd conj) - rape (sieze thou), rapite (sieze ye)

Thanks! :P

Almost.
Dico, duco and facio are exceptions, and form the singular imperative without 'e': dic, duc and fac. Another verb that does this is the irregular verb 'ferre', which has 'fer'.
