Þorm Lv 25I l. 8

vættik — I expect


vætta (verb): expect


[8] vættik (‘ec vætti’): ek mætti 972ˣ, ek veitti Holm4, ek ætla Flat, ek vænti DG8, eg vætta papp4ˣ


[8] es vættik ‘I expect’: Lit. ‘as I expect’. Gaertner (1907, 348) suggests that the meaning may be ‘I hope’, given that Þormóðr did not want to outlive Óláfr.
