As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fingr-höggva (fingr-hǫggva)
- hjó, to hew one’s finger off, Ann. 1342.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fingr-höggva may be more accurately written as fingr-hǫggva.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᚠᛁᚾᚴᚱ-ᚼᚢᚴᚴᚢᛅ
Younger Futhark runes were used from 8th to 12th centuries in Scandinavia and their overseas settlements
