As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- for-tölur (for-tǫlur)
- f. pl. persuasions, Nj. 200, Eg. 9, Hom. 108, Fb. ii. 56, 85.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, for-tölur may be more accurately written as for-tǫlur.
