Skaal Means Bard?[edit]

Does anyone know good norse language here because apparently Skaal is another word for bard. I'd verify that but I'm not really good a viking language. --ModderElGrandeTalk Contribs 15:35, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

From http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-skaal.htm:
"A skål is a Scandinavian toast of friendship and goodwill which may be offered when drinking, sitting down to eat, or at a formal event. Some fans of Scandinavian culture have popularized the skål beyond its native countries, and it can often be heard in many peculiar corners of the world, especially in regions with a large Scandinavian population. You may also see skål spelled as skal or skaal."
In other words, I don't think that is accurate. rpeh •TCE 15:42, 20 March 2010 (UTC)
