-	<p>Since these forms are built with auxiliary verbs, they can be combined straight forward to form complex expressions. For example <span class="sentence lang_fs">ek skal hava skrivt.</span> means <span class="sentence lang_en">i will have written.</span> and <span class="sentence lang_fs">ek hav skalt skriva.</span> means sth. like <span class="sentence lang_en">i was going to write.</span>.</p>

 	<p>The <span class="grammarterm">imperative</span> only exists in the present (with future meaning) for the 2nd person singular and plural. It is formed by using the bare stem of the verb, optionally followed by the personal pronoun (i.e. either <span class="word lang_fs">du</span> or <span class="word lang_fs">je</span>) in order to specify or emphasize the numerus. Examples: <span class="sentence lang_fs">skriv!</span>, <span class="sentence lang_fs">skriv, je!</span>.</p>
