Anon Eirm 8I/4 — Hins ‘One thing’

‘Heill þú nú, Eirekr *;         vel skalt þú hér kominn,
        ok gakk í hǫll horskr.
Hins vil ek þik fregna:         hvat fylgir þér
        jǫfra frá eggþrimu?’

‘Heill þú nú, Eirekr *; þú skalt hér vel kominn, ok gakk horskr í hǫll. Hins vil ek fregna þik: hvat jǫfra fylgir þér frá eggþrimu?’

‘Good fortune to you now, Eiríkr; you will be welcome here, and go, wise, into the hall. One thing I want to ask you: what princes accompany you from the edge-thunder [BATTLE]?’

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)
