Note to Anon Leið 9VII

[8] báglundask fyrir stundum: Although the verb báglunda ‘to become obstreperous, quarrel’ is not otherwise attested in either poetry or prose, there is both a noun and adj. bágr ‘difficul(ty), trouble(some)’ (see ONP) and the adj. báglundr ‘spiteful, warlike’ occurs in Gestr Lv 1/6III, where Snorri goði is characterised as báglundr goði ‘a spiteful priest’. See also Fritzner: lundaðr ‘minded, of a particular disposition’ = lyndr.
