Note to Anon Leið 43VII

[5] Orð* ‘words’: All eds follow Sveinbjörn Egilsson (1844, 69 n. 25) in emending to o ‘word’. This is construed with allra (gen. pl.) ‘of all’ (l. 5) to give orð allra mun verða auðsætt ‘everyone’s words (i.e. public opinion) will be obvious’. B’s reading yðr does not provide skothending and is difficult syntactically.
