DAUÐDHUKKINN -- DÄll, or

dauð-drukkinn, part, dead-drunk, Fms. xi. ioS, Orkn. 420.

dauð-færandi, part, death-bringing, 623. 26, Greg. 14.

dauð-hræddr, nd] . frightened to death.

DAUÐI, a, m. [Ulf. dauþits = Oávaros; A. S. d c a'S; Engl. death; Germ.

to d; Swed. and Dan. dö d] :-- death; the word is used in the strong form

in all Teut. dialects from Gothic to English, but in Icel. it is weak, even

in the eaj-licst writers; though traces of a strong form (dauðr, s or ar)

are found in the phrase til dauðs (to death) and in compds, as mann-dauðr:

cp. also Hm. 69, where dauðr seems to be a substantive not an adjective:

Fagrsk. 139 also writes dauðar-orð instead of dauða orð; an old song, Edda

52, has Dvalins dauðs-drykkr = dauða-drykkr, i. e. the death-drink of the

dwarf; the strong form also remains in such words as dauð-dagi, danð-

hræddr, dauð-yfii, dauð-ligr, dauð-vána, which could not possibly be forms

of a weak daudi, Nj. 198; at dauða kominn, Fms. i. 32; d. for a hann,

Nj. 27; the references are numberless, though heathen proverbs and say-

ings prefer to use ' hel' or ' feigð, ' which were more antique, whereas dauoi

recalls Christian ideas, or sometimes denotes the manner of death. 2.
