As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- af-görð (af-gǫrð)
- f. transgression, offence, mostly in pl., trespasses in a religious sense, Sks. 601, Hkr. iii. 225.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, af-görð may be more accurately written as af-gǫrð.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛅᚠ-ᚴᚢᚱᚦ
Younger Futhark runes were used from 8th to 12th centuries in Scandinavia and their overseas settlements
