Please explain the reason for 2 different conjugations with this verb
I have noticed this peculiarity with s'asseoir as well as a couple of other verbs in French; however, I have never read or found an explanation for the reason this exists like such.
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate reflexive verb s'asseoir in Le Présent (present tense)"

This is an interesting one! Indeed you will hear a mixture of both conjugations in spoken language but I think in the Imperative you might hear,
Assieds-toi, Asseyons-nous and Asseyez-vous
more than the other one.
Hope this helps!
