Sarcasmos er hatrs-full ok óvinulig spottan sem hér er kveðit:
119. At kom gangandi
þar er jǫfrar bǫrðuz
helt upp hǫfði
hér er skattr súltan.
Sarcasmos gerir annat yfirbragð máls en merking.
Sarcasmos is malevolent and tmfriendly mockery, as here: [...] In sarcasmos the appearance of the words belies their true meaning.
