SKJÁR, m. (the older form was prob. ské, analogous to lé, klé, q.v.) :-- a window (the opening). In old dwellings the openings were round, fitted with a hoop or frame (called skjá-grind), which had a membrane (skjall) stretched over it, and this was used instead of glass, and could be taken out at pleasure-; such windows are still found in Icel. farm-houses, all such openings being in the roof, not in the walls, cp. Nj. ch. 78 (init.); and when the frame was taken out, these openings served as outlets for smoke. In some instances skjár seems to be used synonymously with ljóri (q.v.); the hlið-skjár (q.v.), or 'side-skjar,' would then answer to the window or opening in mod. Icel. dwellings; hristust skjáir (chimney-pot = mod. strompr. q.v.)á húsum sem fyrir vindi hvössum, Ann. 1341; Þorbjörn þreif upp stokk ok reisti undir skjáinn ok fór þar út, Gullþ. 19; taka af skjána ok láta leggja út reykinn, Fbr. 99 new Ed.; ef menn sitja í húsum þeim er skjáir eru á, þá er svá ljóst inni, at hverr maðr kennir annan, Sks. 47 new Ed.; konungr hafði gört skjá fyrir stofuna, Fms. vii. 34; fara upp á stofuna ok taka af skjáinn (i.e. the frame), Fbr. 170; hann kastaði því inn um skjáinn, Fas. ii. 81; brutu þeir stofuna um skjána, Sturl. i. 168; hlið-skjár, Sturl. ii. 85; hann hlörar við hliðskjáinn er á var stofunni, Bs. i. 628: the phrase, nú gengr eigi skjall á skjá, N.G.L. i. 384 (see skjall); krumminn á skjá, skjá, skekr belgi þrjá, a nursery rhyme.

skjóni, a, m. a pieball horse, i.e. black and white [see skjóttr]; skjóna, u, f. of a mare.

skjóplask, að, dep., not to be spelt skjöplast, as is seen both from the spelling of the vellum (o, not au, or ?? UNCERTAIN), and also from the mod. popular form skjátla, which is a corruption from skjápla, a form which occurs in Norske Saml. v. 158 :-- to be upset, fail, at eigi skjóplisk, Sks. 86 new Ed.; at engi skjóplisk í einorðinni við annan, Ó.H. 6l; svá at aldri skjóplaðisk (skjöpl- Ed.) okkur vinátta, Fms. vii. 64; kvað Sigmundr hann skjóplaz (skjöpl- Ed.) hafa í ferðinni til Noregs, ii. 114; mun Óðinn vilja skjóplaz í sigrgjöfinni við mik, Fas. i. 380; aldri síðan skal ek skjóplask í yðvarri þjónustu, Fms. via. 369.
