There are lots of blessings where we say Amen at the end, and even lots of places within kaddish where we say Amen, so why at the end of kaddish must we command others to say Amen by saying V'imru Amen (also said in Bentching)?

@Yehoshua Birkas HaChodesh has Venomar Amein, twice. – Ariel Jan 20 '13 at 0:52
@Ariel Venomar vs Vimru is covered in the linked question. I understood Larry to be asking about places where Amen is said with no prompt, eg. the one 4 words into Kaddish. – Double AA Jan 20 '13 at 1:08
Huh? V'imru amein appears multiple times within kaddish. – Fred Feb 9 '15 at 5:49
