Note to Anon Brúðv 11VII

[3] brullaups ‘wedding feast’: As Jón Helgason pointed out, the form brullaups in 399a-bˣ and 2166ˣ is required to form a skothending with brynsvells (-ull- : -ell-) and is adopted here. 721 has the form ‘brvd laups’. The variants brúðhlaup and brullaup existed in ON from an early date (ANG §§268.4, 294).
