The Word "If"

Sometimes attorneys use a clause that starts with if as if it were a complete sentence. ...If you would turn to the second page... ...If you would take a look at this document... This is just "bad grammar" creeping into the transcript. I believe these are "alternate" forms of a command form. ...Please turn to the second page... ...Take a look at this document, if you would... There really is no choice except to put a period after what has now become a sentence. Happy punctuating! Margie
