Langt a hefir sex hljóð: ef þat hefir áblásning h, þá berr þat annat hvárt hvassa hljóðsgrein eða þunga eða umbeygiliga sem hér, [...] . Slíkt hið sama, ef þat hefir eigi áblásning hljóðar þat þrjár leiðir, sem þessi nǫfn, ‘ari’, ‘aranna’, ‘ara’.
(Long a has six sounds: if it has an aspirated h, then it has either an acute accent or grave or circumflex, as here [...]. Likewise, if it does not have aspiration, it is sounded in three ways, as in these words: ‘ari’, ‘aranna’, ‘ara’. )
