Note to Sigv Víkv 5I

[7] enn ‘and’: The conj. en(n) ‘and, but’, rather than the adv. ‘again, further’, is indicated by the word order in ll. 7-8. Most eds including Skj B and ÍF 27 print the conj. in the form en, but enn is a possible form of the conj., produces a better rhyme with gunn- than en, and is the reading of all mss but Bb.
