This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1843 Excerpt: ...for myself. Passive verbs in particular are thus used impersonally with the subject in the dat., when they contain the idea of chance; mer heyrist / hear, come to hear, iner skilst / understand, mer skjatlast or skyzt / make a mistake, mer leiSist I am weary, it is wearisome to me, etc. Some of these are also used with the indef. subject it pat, or both with it and the dat. though in different constructions, e. g. bat tekst varla. It will scarce be lucky, ber tekst varla at, it will scarcely be lucky for thee--, bat tokst honum bd it turned out lucky, for him at last. 284.
