As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- forsölu-jörð (forsǫlu-jǫrð)
- f. a mortgaged estate, N. G. L. i. 214.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, forsölu-jörð may be more accurately written as forsǫlu-jǫrð.
