In various places in dovening, kaddish etc we find the loshon - ..v'imru
Simply understood this is something only said by a sh'ztibur,
as an announcement by the sh'ztibur that the congregation sh answer amen.
In some cases, a yachid says it (ie Kiddush hachodesh, etc) probably
bc we are saying something that originally was said by the sh'ztibur.
What I don't understand is at the end of our silent s'esrai.
Why do we say oseh sholom b'mromav..v'imru amen?
Who are we saying v'imru amen to?
And I don't think it's there bc the silent SE sbe exactly the same
as the sh'ztibur version (since the silent SE is a rehearsal).
Because the silent SE is not a carbon copy of the sh'ztibur version
(for instance - no elokai netzor, SE of fast days are diff, etc)
