Anon Vitn 20VII l. 8

jungkærinn — the young man


jungkæri (noun m.): [young man]



[8] jungkærinn ‘the young man’: This is a loanword from MLG junkher ‘young man, novice’ (see AEW: jungherra). The poet uses the Norw. form jungkæri rather than the Icel. jungkeri to preserve the metre (a long second syllable).
