Hókr Eirfl 8I l. 8

ætt — the high

lemma:

1. ætt (noun f.; °-ar; -ir): family < ættgóðr (adj.): high-born

readings:

[8] ættgóðr: ‘ottꜹðr’ J1ˣ, ótrauðr J2ˣ, 61, 53, 54, 325VIII 2 g, Bb, Flat

notes:

[8] ættgóðr ‘high-born’: The variant ótrauðr ‘not reluctant’ (J2ˣ, 61, 53, 54, 325VIII 2 g, Bb, Flat), which appears to have entered the ÓT redaction from a Hkr ms. of the Jöfraskinna (y) group, leaves the line with skothending (-auð- : -óð-) rather than aðalhending (-óð- : -óð-).
