Stundum verðr þessi fígúra svá, at eitt orð hefir fleiri merkingar, sem Óláfr kvað:
49. Kænn njóti vel vænnar
vin minn konu sinnar
víst erat dapr um drósir
drengr ok eigi lengi.
Hér er óvíst, hvárt þessi sǫgn, eigi, er viðrorð neitiligt eða orð eiginligt.
Sometimes the figure occurs throuth the use of one word which has several meanings, as Oláfr said: [...] Here it is uncertain whether the word eigi is a negative adverb or an actual verb.
