Þar næst stendr æ, þat hljóðar fyrir tveim raddarstǫfum a ok e, ok kalla Girkir þann staf diptongon, þat er tvíhljóðr á nóræna tungu, ok eru fjórir diptongi í látínustafrófi en fimm í rúnum.
(æ is next; it sounds for two vowels: a and e, and the Greeks call that type of letter diptongon, which is tvíhljóðr in the Norse language, and there are four diphthongs in the Latin alphabet but five in runes. )
