As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- ör-vænliga (ǫr-vænliga)
- adv. feignedly; láta örvænliga, sem hann hafi aldri getið sinna eyrinda fyrir þér, to make believe, feign, Fas. iii. 83.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, ör-vænliga may be more accurately written as ǫr-vænliga.
