núa ri-verb (third person singular past indicative neri or néri, supine núið)
- núa um nasir
- núa saman höndum
- One of the four ri-verbs in Icelandic, the other being snúa (“to turn”), gróa (“to grow; to heal”) and róa (“to row”).
- Even though some forms that include the letter e are pronounced as having an é, the e-spelling is thought to be correct by the Icelandic ministry of education. The preferred spelling of the first person singular past tense indicative form of the word núa would thus be neri (“I rubbed”) instead of néri (“I rubbed”), although both forms are used.
