Anon Mv III 21VII l. 7

Áve — Hail

lemma:

ave: hail

readings:

notes:

[5-6]: Wrightson construes these ll. as follows: Skýja laus skör ló, | skilja má að, kóng til ‘The reckless flock lied to the king of clouds [Christ] about it; one can perceive that…’. The reading creates an impossible w.o. and is ungrammatical (ljúga til e-s ‘lie about something’ cannot take a personal acc. object). — [7] Áve ... upphaf: For this internal rhyme, see Note to st. 7/1 above.
