nuitant (1190-93)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: ; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: 6,904 nuitant; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: ]
noitante,  nutant,  nutante  

The word is a substantival use of the present participle of nuiter.

Instances of la nuitant may well be read as l’anuitant (cf. the commentary to nuitance), and the S Edm citation appears in both TL and AND2 as the only attestation of the word anuitant. Ultimately, the word nuitant is better attested than the word anuitant.
