Harri Sygna fór herskildi eyjar ok strandir allt it ýtra.
The lord of the Sygnir [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr] went with the war-shield on the outer course all the way beyond islands and shores.
 it ýtra ‘on the outer course’: Used adverbially here with eyjar ok strandir ‘islands and shores’ as an acc. of place. It ýtra ‘the outer course’ means that the ships sailed outside the coastal islands, and opposed to it innra ‘the inner course’ which would place them on the inner side of the islands.
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)
