Sínaliphe tekr ór annan raddarstaf, ef ii. raddarstafir standaz hit næsta í tveim samstǫfum sem í Bjúgum vísum:
61. Hvés ef ek hleyp at krúsi.
Hér er ór tekit annat e í þessi sǫgn, hvés, ok gǫr ein samstafa af tveim til þess at skothendingar sé jamnhávar. Þar er ok ein samstafa gǫr af tveim pǫrtum viðrorði ok orði ok er þat sólœcismus.
Synaloephe consists in the omission or one of the vowels, if two stand together in two syllables, as is the case here: [...] Here, the second "e" is removed in the form hvés and two syllables are reduced to one so that the skothendingar ("internal half rhymes") are equal. Moreover, soloecismus occurs here, because one syllable has been made of two parts of speech, an adverb and a verb.
