Annotation

The author compares various interpretations and translations of individual verses by Skallagrímr and Egill, focusing on the etymology and semantics of the verses' vocabulary. He draws principally upon the studies of Finnur Jónsson (Kritiske Studier over en del af de ældste norske og islandske Skjaldekvad, 1884) and Hjalmar Falk ("Bemerkungen zu den Lausavísur der Egils saga", 1888), often expressing his preference for one or the other's translations.

Chapter 82: fallhadds: "F. Jónsson explains fallhaddr, 'with falling, down hanging, long hair' as an epithet of the old Óðinn. Maybe it was originally called fallhatts, which would correspond to Síðhǫttr.(fallhaddr erklärt F. Jónsson 'mit fallendem, niederhängendem, langem Haare' als Epitheton des alten Óðinn. Vielleicht hiess es ursprünglich fallhatts, das dem Síðhǫttr entspräche.")" (p. 27).
