8. Introduction (MCR)

The sections of this Introduction on the treatment of foreign learned words and on the normalisation of C14th poetry were written by Kari Ellen Gade, the rest of the Introduction by Margaret Clunies Ross. We are grateful to Robert D. Fulk of Indiana University and Gottskálk Þ. Jensson, of the University of Iceland, for helpful suggestions regarding the treatment of non-Norse words.
