Valg Har 5II l. 4

laust — a doubt

lemma:

lauss (adj.; °compar. lausari): loose, free, without < grunlauss (adj.): unsuspecting

readings:

notes:

[4] grunlaust ‘without a doubt’: Lit. ‘suspicion- or doubt-lessly’. Skj B connects this with frami veitisk þér ‘success is granted you without suspicion’ (l. 2), which does not make much sense and creates a convoluted w. o. (see NN §806). The translation of grunlaust is problematic, and the present edn follows NN §1144.
