As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fjötur-lauss (fjǫtur-lauss)
- adj. unfettered, Fms. xi. 226.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fjötur-lauss may be more accurately written as fjǫtur-lauss.
