noisous (s.xii1/3)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 7,56a nausea; Gdf: 5,518b noisos; GdfC: ; TL: 6,735 noisos; DEAF: ; DMF:  noiseux; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
noiseus,  noisose,  noisus,  noysous  

This word seems to have a formal and semantic overlap with nuisous, and it is sometimes unclear whether a given citation belongs to one or the other. However, their separate etymological backgrounds (see commentaries on noise1 and nuisir), confirmed by the FEW, as well as Gdf, TL and the OED, justifies the existence of two separate entries.
