As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- töðu-gæft (tǫðu-gæft)
- n. adj. hay as good as if it were infield, of hay grown in an outlying field.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, töðu-gæft may be more accurately written as tǫðu-gæft.
