 kapp*: kappi Flat
 kapp* (n. acc. sg.) ‘courage’: The verb deila ‘try, test’ (l. 4) takes the dat. in the construction deila kappi við e-n ‘try one’s courage against sby’ (see Fritzner: kapp). However, it can also take the acc. (see Fritzner: deila 5), and the emendation (following Skj B and Skald) preserves the trisyllabic structure of the kviðuháttr odd l.
 glíkligt: glíkt Flat
 glíkligt ‘likely’: Flat reads glíkt ‘like’ which is hypometrical and makes no sense in the present context.
