As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- örga (ǫrga)
- að, = örðga (q. v.), Hkr. 687 new Ed.; hence prob. per metathesis the mod. ögra, q. v.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, örga may be more accurately written as ǫrga.
