Usage notesEdit

  • One peculiar property of the verb [að] fara ("[to] go") is that it can be repeated ad infinitum, as að fara also means "to be about to [be going to]...". For example:
    Ég erfarafara.
    I'm about to go.
    Ég erfarafarafara.
    I'm about to be going to go.
    Ég erfarafarafarafara.
    I'm about to be going to be going to go.
    and it can be repeated ad nauseam. This is comparable to the English word that.
