As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fjörbaugs-sök (fjǫrbaugs-sǫk)
- f. a case liable to fjörbaugr, Eg. 723, Nj. 164, Grág. i. 90.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fjörbaugs-sök may be more accurately written as fjǫrbaugs-sǫk.
