COMPLETE ALPHABETICAL LISTING

This website is experimental and incomplete. I have taken Meissner's data on SWORD Kennings, reclassified it slightly, and attempted to present it in a new manner. Simplifying Meissner's approach, I have come to the conclusion that the STEMS of the 24 ARROW kennings treated here may be classified as shown in the table below.

Any classification of the above STEMS will always be problematic and open to criticism. However, the classification of QUALIFIERS is much simpler. I have settled upon the following:

0.aMYTHOS7
2.ABATTLE1
4.aWEAPONS: ARROWS1
4.cWEAPONS: BOWS7
4.dBOWSTRINGS6
6.bWOUNDS2
