- Runic pm. Kmbl. 341, 8-13.
like m (q. v.), in Anglo-Saxon generally corresponds to n in Gothic and in other cognate dialects, e. g. net, hand, án;
but, like m, it falls away before ð and s,
and the vowel which preceded the n is lengthened, e. g. cúð, tóð, óðer, múð, húsel, est;
If, however, n and s come together by the loss of an intervening vowel the n remains,
e. g. winstre;
The character which appears in the Runic poem is ᚾ ,
and the verse, in which the name (cf. is given, is the following
Goth. nati, handus, ains;
O. H. Ger. nezzi, hant, ein;
O. Sax. net, hand, én;
Goth. kunþs, tunþus, anþar, munþs, hunsl, ansts;
O. H. Ger. chund, zand, andar, mund, anst;
O. Sax. kúð, tand, óðar, múð, anst.
O. H. Ger. O. Sax. winistar.
