Note to Anon Pl 50VII

[3] strengjar ‘of the ribbon’: Emendation proposed by Louis-Jensen (1998). Sveinbjörn Egilsson had ‘-s engiar’ and Finnur Jónsson þvengjar (1887, remarking that <þu> is very unclear). The reading þvengjar would produce excessive alliteration (if the following word is þar) and þvengr is not found elsewhere as an element of a kenning for woman. Strengjar seems preferable, although the gen. of this word ends in -s in st. 24.
