ǪrvOdd Ævdr 26VIII (Ǫrv 96) l. 7

frið — peace


friðr (noun m.): peace


[7] frið vildim: vér vildum frið 343a, vildum frið 471, 173ˣ


[7] frið vildim ‘we wanted peace’: All mss have the 1st pers. pl. pret. indic. vildum here, but eds have normalised to the subj. form after the conj. hvárt ‘whether’. The word order has been changed here, as in Ǫrv 81/7, in order to avoid alliteration on <f> falling in metrical position 4 in a Type B/E line.
