Anon Mv I 16VII/5 — in

Flóði á frúinnar klæði
fári spent í tárum,
og með angri nógu
ófæltiliga mælti:
‘Sjáðu, in mjúka móðir,
mína þörf og pínu;
mig skulu meinum kvelja
menn og eldi brenna.

Spent fári flóði í tárum á klæði frúinnar, og mælti ófæltiliga með nógu angri: ‘Sjáðu, in mjúka móðir, mína þörf og pínu; menn skulu kvelja mig meinum og brenna eldi.

Surrounded with danger, she was flooded with tears [which ran] onto the lady’s robe, and she spoke fearlessly with abundant grief: ‘See, gentle mother, my need and anguish; men are going to torture me with injuries and burn me with fire.

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)
