As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fjör-skaði (fjǫr-skaði)
- a, m. ‘life-scathe,’ injury to one’s life, N. G. L. i. 169.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fjör-skaði may be more accurately written as fjǫr-skaði.
