As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- flökrt (flǫkrt)
- n. adj. a ‘fluttering’ feeling, nausea; mér er flökurt, I am like to be sick; flökr-leiki, a, m. a feeling rather sick, Fél.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, flökrt may be more accurately written as flǫkrt.
