Eskál Vell 19I l. 5

snerrinn — seasoned


snerrinn (adj.): [seasoned] < fjǫlsnerrinn (adj.)


[5] ‑snerrinn: so FskAˣ, 52ˣ, 301ˣ, ‘‑ner rennr’ FskBˣ, 51ˣ, 302ˣ


[5] fjǫlsnerrinn ‘war-seasoned’: The cpd, and indeed the simplex snerrinn, is a hap. leg. Snerrinn is related to adj. snarr ‘bold, keen, vigorous’ and snerra f. ‘battle, tumult’ (AEW: snerra 1, 2), hence fjǫlsnerrinn means ‘much experienced in battle’, or ‘very bold’.
