As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- bröstuliga (brǫstuliga)
- adv. (-ligr, adj.), in the phrase, láta b., to brag, Sturl. i. 140 C, [cp. braska = to twist, Ivar Aasen.]
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, bröstuliga may be more accurately written as brǫstuliga.
