The future is grammaticalised but not inflectional. It can be produced in either one of two ways:

  • Conjugating 'fyðí' ('to move towards') and attaching it to an infinitive.
  • Putting the clipped particle fyð next to a conjugated verb.

Thus, we shall go for a walk would be fyðím byrí or byrím fyð.
