teh forms are 'sjedi' or 'sjedite', if you're dealing with bosnian serbs, you might find the following forms:
"sedi" and "sedite". the plural form "-te" is used when adressing to a stranger or in a formal/polite context.

or "sjedi/sjedni" if given to an age-peer, etc. If talking to Serbs, however, it is "Sedite" or "Sednite", and "Sedi" or "Sedni". No special pronunciation problems, the absence or presence of "n" is not important. You can use any form.
