The AURAICEPT materials used by Calder do include materials from the sources
cited. That's what I said.
Calder provides the entire text whereas MvcManus provides and abbreviated
and edited version.
In Calder's text there are synonyms provided to explain the kennings while
McManus has left them out.
The text at the link on the UCC Celt website that I previously supplied also
provides a list of synonyms. These should be used in interpreting the meanings
and spellings of the words and phrases.
