Anon Nkt 9II/5 — æ ‘very’

Þá vas haugr
ept Harald orpinn
á Rogalandi.
Þess mun æ
uppi lengi
hildings nafn
Halfdans sonar.

Þá vas reisuligr haugr orpinn ept Harald á Rogalandi. Nafn þess hildings, sonar Halfdans, mun æ uppi lengi.

Then a magnificent mound was erected in memory of Haraldr in Rogaland. The name of the ruler, of Hálfdan’s son [= Haraldr], will be remembered for a very long time.


[5] æ ‘very’: Lit. ‘always’. The adv. is taken as an intensifier to lengi ‘long’ (see Fritzner: æ 1).
