As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- embættis-görð (embættis-gǫrð)
- f. officiating (of a clergyman), Bs. i. 811.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, embættis-görð may be more accurately written as embættis-gǫrð.
