Note to Anon Lil 17VII

[7] með heiðr ‘with honour’: Some mss record the more common dat. sg. heiðri, but the form without an ending is also found. Heiðr is a m. a-stem noun, with -r belonging to the stem; -ri is the expected dat. sg. form (after með), but sometimes a-stems are inflected like i-stems, with no ending in the dat. sg. (see ANG §358.3, which does not, however, cite this noun). Fritzner: heiðr gives examples in the dat. sg. both with and without (see last three examples) the -i ending.
