As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- ber-sögli (ber-sǫgli)
- f. [bersögull, adj.], a free, frank speech; hence bersöglis-vísur, f. pl., name of a poem by Sighvat, Fms. vi. 38 sq.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, ber-sögli may be more accurately written as ber-sǫgli.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛒᛁᚱ-ᛋᚢᚴᛚᛁ
