As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- bein-högg (bein-hǫgg)
- n. a blow injuring the bone, opp. to svöðu sár, Sturl. i. 13.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, bein-högg may be more accurately written as bein-hǫgg.
