129. It must be observed that the Imperative 1st and 2nd
person harmonize with the Indicative Present. The third person
is formed by the Conjunctive, as: Nj. 67:

                köllum karl enn skegglausa!

and Sverriss. S. 185:

                Týnom Birkibeinum!

                beri Sverrir hlut verra! etc.

130. In reflective verbs the 1st
Person Plur. -umst, is often
seen, also in the 1st Pers. Sing, as:

                eigi berjumst ek (Fms. 6, 25),

                ek hugðumst (Snorra E. 97).

131. The terminations of the Plural drop in the 1st Pers.
-m, in the 2nd Pers, -t (ð) [[** kursiv i dansk **]] if immediately followed by a pronoun,
particularly in the Imperative, as:

                megu ver, megu þit (Nj. 17),

                föru ver! fari her!

132. The 1st Class is very regular. Words which have no
-a in the principal syllable take naturally no modification, as:

                ek skipa, ver skipum, ek skipaða, ver skipuðum,

not even those which have ö, change it into a, although the
-u termin., which seems to have occasioned the ö in the principal
syllable, is dropped and terminates in -a, as:

                ek fjötra, ver fjötrum, ek fjötraða, ver fjötruðum,

133. The other class has some irregularities, occasioned
by the vowel -i in the Imperfect and Part., which is dropped
if the consonant is the same as the root. The ancients make
it single, where it was double as:
byggi bygða bygt -gðr -gð
hnýkki hnykta hnykt -ktr -kt
kippi kipta kipt -ptr -pt
kenni kenda kent -dr -d
stemmi stemda stemt -dr -d
hvessi hvesta hvest -tr -t

134. The termination is still more influenced by the consonant
of the root

        -ta after p, t, k, s,
