As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- stökkvi-brögð (stǫkkvi-brǫgð)
- n. pl. an unforeseen accident (?); nú hafa vorðit í s., Fb. iii. 450.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, stökkvi-brögð may be more accurately written as stǫkkvi-brǫgð.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛋᛏᚢᚴᚴᚢᛁ-ᛒᚱᚢᚴᚦ
