Bjbp Jóms 42I l. 2

Þorketill — Þorkell

lemma:

Þórkell (noun m.): [Þorkell]

readings:

[2] Þorketill: Þorkell 54, Þorkel Bb

notes:

[2] Þorketill ‘Þorkell’: The uncontracted form of the pers. n. works metrically; the contracted form Þorkel(l) is used in Bb, where the additional adv. þá ‘then’ completes the required count of six syllables, and in 54, which is metrically deficient.
