This website is experimental and incomplete. I have taken Meissner's data on WOLF 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 63 WOLF 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.aMYTHOS5
1.aODIN1
1.fGIANTESSES41
2.ABATTLE1
6.aBLOOD1
6.bWOUNDS1
6.cTHE SLAIN1
