does "vredesbyrd" mean anything?
From: alf helge
No, absolutely nothing whatsoever,although appearently the group Dimmu Borgir has named one of their songs "Vredesbyrd". The two parts of the words are vrede =wrath, and byrd = birth, ancestry, class. So I suppose that the group may have juxtaposed those, and more or less invented this term, with a meaning possibly of their own. Which of course they are totally entitled to (linguistic innovation). The word gives off a kind of Old Norse,antiquated scent. You certainly wouldn't hear Norwegians use it in everyday speech ("Hey, what happened to your vredesbyrd?" "Oh, my vredesbyrd is hurting really bad!" I don't think so!)
Thank you so much for your answer! In my searches for translation I also found "vrede" and "byrd" but the actual meaning was elusive. On a different forum I found "Cognition of wrath" (didn't make too much sense).
Where can i find a translation to the whole song?
I understand the whole song becouse I'm Swedish, suckers! xD
There is a live video on YouTube with subtitles in English and Norwegian.
vrede means peace...
