Fy vor o er i chimeri, Haagt vara Nam det.
La Koningdom din cumma.
La villin vera guerde i vrildin sin daere chimeri.
Gav wis dagh ur dought brau.
Forgivie sindor wasa sin vi forgiva dem as sindor wasa wus.
Lea wus ki o vera tempa, at delivra wus fra adla idluor.
For du er koningdom ri puri o glori.

(Recorded on Unst by Thomas Edmonston (?), around 1800)

I remembered right, 'll' = 'dl' in Unst as well Very Happy

The two last places to speak norn, Foula and Unst, both have ll as dl, interesting.

Maybe we could unify the two dialects (Westnorn and Eastnorn) even more?

I think this is the only occurrence of 'dl' in Unst ever known. Most likely it reflects the original pronunciation which was later replaced by 'lj'. Jakobsen wrote that the change dl,dn > lj,nj was happening in Foula and especially Westside. So the geographic distribution of dl,dn could be much wider than it was when Jakobsen was recording his data.
