As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- nös-gás (nǫs-gás)
- f. a kind of goose, Gsp.: mod. bles-önd = anas.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, nös-gás may be more accurately written as nǫs-gás.
