Robinson released their landmark variation of Beowulf (Mitchell & Robinson 1998). The paintings can actually be regarded as a summa of scholarship in this epic textual content. the subsequent 8 notes talk about person passages during which a few differences of the normal interpretations appear attainable. within the person instances the vocabulary doesn't current significant difficulties, yet problems come up within the syntactic research. All quotations are taken from Mitchell and Robinson (1998). Diacritics were passed over until required through the linguistic argument. The notes take care of 8 half-lines of the Beowulf textual content: (1) meodosetla ofteah (5b), (2) feond on helle (101b), (3) swylcum gifeFe biB (299b), (4) seon sibbegedriht (387a), (5) wiste Fæm ahlæcan (646b), (6) be aware oFer fand (870b), (7) Fa hine se broga angeat (1291b) and (8) on fæder stæle (1479b). 1 meodosetla ofteah (5b) The preliminary 3 strains of Beowulf discuss with the honour of the Danish kings in former occasions. Then the legendary founding father of the dynasty is brought: Oft Scyld Scefing sceafena freatum monegum mægfum meodosetla ofteah (Beo 4–5) Liuzza interprets the 2 traces as follows: “Often Scyld Scefing seized the mead-benches from many tribes, troops of enemies” (Liuzza: 2000: 53). The first and foremost sight virtually seen interpretation of meodosetla ofteah as ‘he pulled away the mead-benches’ is grammatically no longer appropriate, in spite of the fact that: IOEC01 19 7/11/05, 10:25 AM 20 Alfred Bammesberger meodosetla is definitely a genitive of the plural, however the verb ofteon ‘pull away’ governs the accusative. the proper interpretation of meodosetla ofteah used to be urged in an early paper via Holtzmann (1863) and repeated with additional fabric by means of Sievers (1904): the shape ofteah isn't the preterite of oftHon ‘pull away’ (strong verb of sophistication II going again to Gmc. *teuh- and relating to German ziehen), yet has to be interpreted because the preterite of oftIon ‘refuse’. OE of-tIon is a robust verb of sophistication I, issues again to Gmc. *teih- and is said to German zeihen (in verzeihen ‘to pardon’). If we would have liked to normalize the analyzing shall we installed the shape oftGh, that can were the authorial model. however the verbs OE tion (< Gmc. *teih-) and tHon ‘draw’ (< Gmc. *teuh-) weren't always stored aside; in this improvement see Campbell (1959: 308). even if the 2 traces particularly suggest that Scyld Scefing subjugated different tribes by means of disposing of their mead-benches is something yet yes. because the underlying verb is well of-tIon (< Gmc. *teih-, category I of robust verbs) we should always posit the verb’s which means as ‘refuse’. The message might then be that Scyld Scefing didn't enable different tribes to accomplish independence; that they had to stay lower than his rule. The half-line sceaFena Freatum can be utilized in instrumental functionality and will consult with Scyld Scefing’s personal troops. the 2 quoted traces might hence be translated as follows: ‘Often Scyld Scefing, along with his troops of warriors, refused meadbenches to many tribes’ (i. e. he didn't let them independence). 2 feond on helle (101b) Hrothgar comes to a decision to construct an excellent corridor named Heorot.
