originates, by dropping the reflex, suffix, the mod. Swed. and Dan. at

draga -- to go, esp. of troops or a body of men; in old writers the active

form hardly ever occurs in this sense (the reading drogu in the verse

Fms. iii. 4 is no doubt false); and in rrod. usage it is equally unknown

in Icel., except maybe in allit. phrases as, e. g. út á djúpið hann Oddr

dró, Snot 229 new Ed.; to Icel. ears draga in this sense sounds strange;

even the rerlex. form is seldom used in a dignified sense; vide the refer-
