As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- eptir-þörf (eptir-þǫrf)
- f., in the phrase, koma ekki í e., to be not amiss.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, eptir-þörf may be more accurately written as eptir-þǫrf.
