As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fjöru-borð (fjǫru-borð)
- n. the sea-board, the breadth of the fjara, metaph. from a cup, cp. the mythical tale in Edda l. c.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fjöru-borð may be more accurately written as fjǫru-borð.
