As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- bekk-sögn (bekk-sǫgn)
- f., poët. the people seated in a hall, Gísl. (in a verse).
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, bekk-sögn may be more accurately written as bekk-sǫgn.
