Abstract

This is a miscellany of 12 articles selected from such periodicals as The Journal of English and Germanic Philology, Language, Arkiv för nordisk filologi, PMLA, Budkavlen etc, issued between 1932 and 1964. The editor A. Libermann has taken pains to cover Stéfan Einarsson's main scholarly interests, i.e. phonetics, semantics, metrics, folklore and historiography.  Moreover, he has provided the reader with some very important  discussions and views on Nordic, and particularly Icelandic linguistic and literary topics, which are nevertheless interesting for Germanic and other philologists in general. Though Icelandic and Scandinavian are at the centre of interest, examples and parallels are drawn from other languages and cultures parti­ cularly English and Finnish.
