As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fót-högg (fót-hǫgg)
- n. hewing off one’s feet, Eb. 246, Sturl. ii. 90.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fót-högg may be more accurately written as fót-hǫgg.
