Hókr Eirfl 8I l. 5

sunnr — south


sunnr (adv.): south


[5] sunnr: so 61, 53, 54, 325VIII 2 g, Bb, suðr Kˣ, F, J1ˣ, J2ˣ, FskBˣ, FskAˣ, sneri Flat


[5] sunnr ‘south’: So 61, 53, 54, 325VIII 2 g, Bb. The Hkr and Fsk mss have the variant suðr ‘south’, which has been adopted in ÍF 26. It is doubtful, however, whether the conj. en ‘but’ could have been stressed strongly enough to carry the internal rhyme in this line (en : ‑unn- rather than ‑unn- : ‑unn-).
