Sigv ErfÓl 10I l. 7

stað — stad


1. staðr (noun m.; °-ar/-s; -ir): place


[7] ‑stað: ‘stat’ Holm2


[7] Stiklarstað ‘Stiklestad’: Rygh et al. (1897-1936, XV, 122) suggest that this is the original form of the name, though forms without <r> appear from an early stage; see also Note to Þorm Lv 23/3-4. The p. n. is fitted into the metrical lines by mild tmesis, involving reversal of the elements, as also in BjHall Kálffl 5/5; see also Kuhn (1983, 112) and Note to ESk Geisl 17/1, 2VII .
