From Old Norse veggr.
vegg m (definite singular veggen, indefinite plural vegger or veggar, definite plural veggene or veggane)
- a wall
- The words mur and vegg are both translated into English as wall. However, they are widely distinguished in the following manner: only mur is commonly used for freestanding walls. Only vegg is commonly used for the walls of a building, whether internal or external. Mur is restricted to stone or concrete walls, whereas vegg is used regardless of material. A wall made from brick or stone can be called a murvegg.
