Anon Sól 20VII/1 — hinn

Svá honum gafz        Sörla inum góðráða,
        þá er hann lagði á vald hans Vígolfs;
tryggliga hann trúði,        en hinn at tálum varð,
        sínum bróðurbana.

Svá gafz honum Sörla inum góðráða, þá er hann lagði á vald hans Vígolfs; hann trúði sínum bróðurbana tryggliga, en hinn varð at tálum.

So it turned out for Sörli the well-meaning, when he put the matter in Vígolfr’s power; he trusted securely in his brother’s killer, but that man engaged in deceit.

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)
