115. Nokkut (danish noget) any, is contracted from
nak and hvert, hvat or hvart, in which ve or va is
contracted into u; this has many forms, of which we give the
oldest and most correct one.
Sing. Nom. nakkvart nakkvarr nökkur or nokkor
Acc. nakkvart nakkvarn nakkvara or nokkora
Dat. nökkuru nökkurum nakkvarri
Gen. nakkvars nakkvarrar
Plur. Nom. nökkur nakkvarir nakkvarar
Acc. nökkur nakkvara nakkvarar
Dat. nökkurum
Gen. nakkvarra.

In n. g. also nakkvat, if derived from hvat, Dat. nökkví [[** punktum mgl: dansk har så **]]

Sometimes nökkut, nökkurr, nökkur,

and often nokkut, nokkurr, nokkur,

which has been adopted in the modern language. The two
last forms are also abridged by the moderns as:

        Dat. nokkru, nokkrum, nokkurri [[** punktum mgl.: dansk har så **]]

116. The negative pronoun is a compound of eitt, einn,
and the negative termination -gi, -ki, which also takes
many irregular forms; the oldest and most correct seem to be:
Sing. Nom. ekki (for eitki) eingi eingi
Acc. ekki eingan (eingi) einga
Dat. eingu (einugi) eingum eingri
Gen. eingis, einkis, einskis eingrar
Plur. Nom. eingi eingir eingar
Acc. eingi einga eingar
Dat. eingum
Gen. eingra

The syllable eing is often found contracted into eng;
thus in the Acc.: engan, enga; and this eng changes with
öng, as: öngan, önga; or with an inserted v

         as: öngvan, öngva,

         Dat. öngu, öngum, öngri,

or even: öngarri, Gen. öngarrar, it also lengtens into
aung, as: aungan, aunga, or aungvan, aungva.

But in n. g. and m. g. Gen. occur the changes of ei,
or i in the chief syllable, not önkis, aunskis.
