Svá sem metaplasmum kallaz í skáldskap sá lǫstr, er barbarismus kallaz í alþýðligu máli, ok þykkir þat stundum fegra skáldskap, slíkt hit sama er sólœcismus í skáldskap settr fyrir skrúðs sakir, ok er hann þá scema kallaðr.
Just as barbarismus can be used for beautiful effects in poetry, and is then termed metaplasmus, likewise can soloecismus he used in poetry for the sake of embellishment, and is then termed schema.
