As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- ömurligr (ǫmurligr)
- adj. dreary, horrid; í hræðiligu dreka líki ok ömorligu, Niðrst. 1; cp. amra, p. 19.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, ömurligr may be more accurately written as ǫmurligr.
