Sigv ErfÓl 22I l. 4

tjogu — twenty


tjugo (num. cardinal): [twenty]


[4] tjogu: tigu 325VI, 325VII, Flat, Tóm, tugu 73aˣ, tigum 61, ‘tavgv’ 325V, ‘togo’(?) 325XI 2 n


[4] tjogu ‘twenty’: Finnur Jónsson (Hkr 1893-1901, IV) notes this as a Swed. form of the numeral and ascribes it to Sigvatr’s occasional use of fremmed sprogmateriale ‘foreign linguistic material’ (cf. also TGT 1884, 203), here presumably because two syllables fit the line more easily than the three of the normal OWN form tuttugu, found several times in, e.g., Anon NktII. Sigvatr had been in Sweden: see, e.g., Sigv Austv. See also Note to st. 26/2 dœgn below.
