noceiement (c.1170)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: *7,243a nuptiae; Gdf: 5,507b noçoiement; GdfC: ; TL: 6,689 noçoiement; DEAF: ; DMF:  nossoiement; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]

The word is a rare (in Anglo-Norman) synonym for noces, constructed as a substantival derivation of the verb noceier. Its use in this single citation was probably prompted by the need for a rhyme.
