As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- hjá-brögð (hjá-brǫgð)
- n. pl. tricks, devices; h. heimsins, Mar.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, hjá-brögð may be more accurately written as hjá-brǫgð.
