As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- bónorðs-för (bónorðs-fǫr)
- f. a wooing journey; fara b., to go a-wooing, Nj. 16.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, bónorðs-för may be more accurately written as bónorðs-fǫr.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛒᚢᚾᚢᚱᚦᛋ-ᚠᚢᚱ
