Um stundar viðrlagning verðr barbarismus sem kvað Eilífr Guðrúnarson:
Váru vǫnd ok mýrar
verðr hitt at þau skerða
svell var áðr um alla
ól torráðin hóla.
Hann kallar torráðin ól vǫndol ok gerir langa þessa samstǫfu ol til þess at hendingar sé jafnhávar.
Barbarismus occurs in the addition of length, as Eillir Guðrúnarson said: [...] He calls vǫndol torráðin ól, making the syllable ol long, to make the rhyming syllables equal.
