Anon (Hák) 2II/3 — ina ‘this’

Eina kannk vísu:         ari sat á steini;
ok ina aðra:         ari sat á steini;
ǫlls, sem ein sé:         ari sat á steini.

Kannk eina vísu: ari sat á steini; ok ina aðra: ari sat á steini; ǫlls, sem ein sé: ari sat á steini.

I know one verse: an eagle sat on a rock; and this second one: an eagle sat on a rock; everything is, as if it were one: an eagle sat on a rock.

grammar

Pronouns and determiners: Definite article

The definite article is normally suffixed to nouns, except in some cases where it is used with an adjective. If the noun form ends in a vowel, the 'i' in the article is dropped. If the noun form ends in 'um', the 'm' and 'i' are both dropped. E.g. hesta (acc. pl.) > hestana (acc. pl. definite); hestum (dat. pl.) > hestunum (dat. pl. definite)
