nauser (s.xivin)

[ hap]

[ FEW: *7,33a nasus; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  nose v.; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

The verb is unattested in French, though the FEW sub nasus (7,33a) notes the use of the hapax nazilier used in the sense of ‘renifler’ in the 15th century. The forms nariller, nasiller, nariner are all attested in the DMF, though the latter only has the meaning of ‘to wrinkle one’s nose’. The verbal use of nose is unattested in English until late in the 16th century.
