As in Icelandic, p from the personal pronoun pú affiliates enclitically ith the second- person singular present tense of 1) strong verbs with the stems ending in postvocalic -r, 2) verbs with stems ending in vowels, usually reduplicatíve verbs: tú fert, bert; tú doyrt, fart, where Icelandic would have in the same position -ð: pú ferð, berð: pú deyrð, færð. This phenomenon does not exist in the dialect of the southern islands. There it is usual for -(s)t of the second person of preterite-present verbs and for the past tense of strong verbs to be dropped (tú ber, fór in place of tú bert, fórt).
