Scemalexeos heyrir svá til sólœcismum sem metaplasmus til barbarismum í ǫllu því, er til lasta veit, en þó er scema miklu meirr í leyfi sett, þvíat hon þykkir jafnan fegra í skáldskap.
Schema Laxeos belongs to solecismus as metaplasmus belongs to barbarismus, in everything pertaining to faults. Schema however is used with much more licence because it is considered to embellish poetry.
