Flæðar-urðOld Norse Dictionary - flæðar-urð
Meaning of Old Norse word "flæðar-urð" in English.
As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- f. rocks reached by high water, Grett. 99. The word flæðr may be used as a test, to shew whether a MS. was written in the west of Icel. or not; but for authorship it is not sufficient, as copyists were apt to alter such things; thus the Gullþ. S. (a western Saga) uses flóð not flæðr; at the present day an Icel. from the west is ridiculed in other counties of Icel. for his flæðr.
