As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fót-höggva (fót-hǫggva)
- hjó, to hew one’s feet off, Fms. viii. 167, ix. 19, Sturl. ii, 66.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fót-höggva may be more accurately written as fót-hǫggva.
