As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- tún-völlr (tún-vǫllr)
- m. a strip of the in-field, Kormak, Grág. ii. 257, Jb. 423. Sturl. i. 83, Eb. 250; hann lét færa farminn heim á túnvöll sinn ok görði þeim tjald, Fb. i. 422.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, tún-völlr may be more accurately written as tún-vǫllr.
