    Geirr Bassi Errors

    hákr:
    Geir Bassi defines <hákr> as "hake, fish".
    ...
    [He was called Thorkel foulmouth, because he spared no one with whom he had to do either in word or deed. (http://sagadb.org/brennu-njals_saga.en#118)]
    Finnur Jónnson says "hákr bet. en 'voldsom, uforskammet' person, der er dygtig til at bruge mund." [hákr has the sense of 'a violent, rude' person skilled in insults (http://books.google.com/books?id=KWkSAAAAYAAJ orhttp://heimskringla.no/wiki/Tilnavne_i_den_islandske_oldlitteratur)]
    ...
    Nj. 183.
    In modern Norwegian, "å hakke" ("å" is the infinitive marker) means 'to hack/chop' also in the sense of verbally pecking at/chiding someone and it can be done over a long period and mercilessly.

    Columbine, slipped - page 1
    ...
    Often enough we see submission with flowers of X petals blazoned as X-foils. It is not clear where this originated from, but foils are heraldic depictions of clovers and their leaves have a fairly defined shape (with some minor variations). Using the blazon of an X-foil to describe the emblazon of a flower with X petals, where the petals are typically round and attached to the center at a single point or in such other manner that there's obvious "seeding", does not necessarily ensure the reproducibility of the submitted charge from that blazon. SENA A.1.B states that We register the emblazon, rather than the blazon. Any discrepancies between the image and the description will be resolved by changing the description to match the image. To allow for reproducibility of what the submitter has submitted, we have been and will continue reblazoning X-foils that do not look like actual X-foils as the closest known period flower of X petals, or returning for redraw if no accurate blazon can be found.

    FromMarch 2013 - slipping and leaving doesn't count for difference
    Elyse Morgaine. Badge. (Fieldless) A rose proper.Blazoned on
    the JulyLetter of Intent as each petal charged with a lozenge Or, the lozenges here are sufficiently small and match the center seeding tincture, giving the overall impression of just an artistic detail on the rose, not a distinct tertiary charge group. This then is indistinguishable from an uncharged rose.This badge is returned for conflict with the well-known badge of the House of Lancaster, (Fieldless) A rose gules.This badge is also returned for conflict with the badge of Dana of Coleraine, (Fieldless) A primrose gules, slipped and leaved and seeded proper. There is a DC for fieldlessness, but no difference between a rose and a primrose, nor any difference for the slipping and leaving.

    From the FebruaryFebruary 2008 LoAR:LoAR - locatives based on Scots river names not documented:
    Kevin MacGregor of Kelwiny. Name and device. Gules, on a pile Or a mastiff statant sable, a bordure argent.
    Originally submitted as Kevin MacGregor of Kelvin... the only documentation provided for the byname of Kelvin was a river whose name was recorded as Kelvin in 1200. No documentation was submitted and none found to suggest that river names were used to form Scots locative bynames in period; barring such documentation, locative bynames based on Scots river names are not registerable. Black, The Surnames of Scotland, s.n. Kelwiny, dates the similar (though so far as we can tell unrelated) byname de Kelwiny to 1296. We have changed the name to Kevin MacGregor of Kelwiny in order to register it in a form close to the one originally submitted.
