afkart ‘prodigious’: For the various meanings of this adj., see Anon Pl 27/6VII. That the vowel of ‑kart in the present st. is short is suggested by the rhyme afkart : hjarta, and this may be supported by the rhyme of afkárr/afkarr on fjarri in Pl 27/6VII and of launkarr on fjar- in Bjhít Lv 5/8V (cf. Note to st. 5/1 afkárlig, and see further Whaley 1998, 188 on the short vowel).
