Kom hann þar at kveldi dags, ok reið hann þegar í borgina. Hann hafði síðan hatt yfir hjálmi ok alvæpni hafði hann. Egill spurði hvar garðr sá væri í borginni er Arinbjǫrn átti. Honum var þat sagt; hann reið þangat í garðinn. En er hann kom at stofunni, steig hann af hesti sínum ok hitti mann at máli. Var honum þá sagt, at Arinbjǫrn sat yfir matborði. Egill mælti: ‘Ek vilda, góðr drengr, at þú gengir inn í stofuna, ok spyr Arinbjǫrn, hvárt hann vill heldr úti eða inni tala við Egil Skallagrímsson.’
Choose the correct grammatical information for the highlighted word above; you can select another word randomly with the ‘try another word’ button or tap on a specific word to select it. Start by selecting the part of speech for the highlighted word, then the appropriate categories will be enabled — if grammatical information has been entered into the database for this text. Once you have selected the correct analysis the buttons will be highlighted.
Here you can test your Old Norse skills by filling out information about the grammatical form of words in the text. A word is chosen at random. You must choose the part of speech first, then the other categories will be enabled as relevant. If the text has not been lemmatised (linked to dictionary headwords) this page won’t function correctly; if it has been lemmatised but not parsed in the database you will only be able to select the part of speech and not the other grammatical information. You will have completed the task when all enabled buttons have been highlighted. Some parts of speech which do not decline/conjugate will not require any further action than selecting the correct part of speech.
The hint will give information about the translation of the word in context which may help to to determine the grammatical information.
