Usage notesEdit

The subjunctive forms , sért, , séum, séuð and séu are used as other Icelandic verbs, e.g. when the situation is hypothetical. By contrast, the forms veri, verir, veri, verum, verið and veri are unique to the verb vera, in that they are used optatively to express desires; e.g., fari hann og veri means may he leave and never return, and the Islamic phrase peace be upon you is translated friður veri með þér.
