As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- brodd-stöng (brodd-stǫng)
- f. a (mountaineer’s) pole with an iron spike, Valla L. 212.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, brodd-stöng may be more accurately written as brodd-stǫng.
