nuier (s.xiiex)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: *4,701b inodiare; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  noy v.; MED:  noien v.; DMLBS: ]
noer,  noier,  noyer;  nuer,  nuier,  nuyer  

The second sense (‘to harm, hurt’) shows some semantic overlap with (and probably influence of) nuisir (derived from Latin nocere rather than in odio). Similarly, the p.pr. as s. (‘adversary, one who intends harm’) overlaps with nuisant.
