Metatesis skiptir stǫfum, sem fyrr er sagt, í þessum orðum:
Bort sá er hug né skorti.
Hér er skipt stǫfum ok sett r fyrri en t at kveðandi haldiz.
Metathesis is the transposition of letters, as is written above concerning the words: [...] Here the letters are transposed, "r" being placed before "t" so that the rhyming syllables are equal.
