87. Although the adjective has but one declension there
are several exceptions to be observed which occur through the
joining of the final syllable with the root.

If the last radical letter be ð preceded by a vowel or a
diphthong, it absorbs in the n. g. with t to tt as:

        glatt, glaðr̓, glöðglossy, bright;

        breitt, breiðr̓, breiðbroad;

in one case, the accent is lost, namely in

        gott, góðr, góð (good).

If a consonant precedes, the ð is altogether dropped:

        hart, harðr̓, hörð (hard) — sagt, sagðr̓, sögð (said)

        haft, hafðr̓, höfð (clever)

The same in dissyllabic words, if a vowel precedes:

        kallat, kallaðr̓, kölluð;

        lagit, lagiðr, lagið (for kallaðt, lagiðt).

Also d after a consonant as:

        vant, vandr̓, vönd (difficult) — selt, seldr̓, seld;

        geymt, geymdr̓, geymd.

        gladt, gladdr̓, glödd (glad) — breidt, breiddr̓,

        breidd (broad) — mœdt, mœddr͗, mœdd (tired).

If the word ends in tt, no further t is added in the n. g. but
the form becomes similar to the feminine, as:

        sett, settr̓, settmœtt, mœttr̓, mœtt.

In weaker consonants the gender may part as: latt, lattr̓,
lött, nor can it be distinguished in the n. g. from a similar
word with single t, as:

        latt, latr̓, löt (lazy) — hvatt, hvattr̓, hvött and
hvatt, hvatr̓, hvöt (hasty).

88. The adjectives, the root of which end in an accented
vowel, deviate in so far that they double the -t in the n. g.,
the -r in the f. g. in the terminations -ri and -rar, the -ra
in the Gen. Plur., and often the -s in n. and m. g. Gen. Sing. as
