sudement (s.xii1)


[ FEW: 12,336b subitus; Gdf: 7,994b soudement; GdfC: ; TL: 9,701 sode 1 (sodement); DEAF:  sode (sodement); DMF:  soudement; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 3240c subitus ]
sodement,  soudement;  suddement  

FEW and TL consider sodeement and sodement as deriving from different etymologies: sodeement from subitare, sodement from subitus. Also, Gdf separates soudemeent and soudeement as two different entries. The DMF notes several instances of soudement in its corpus and just one for soude, but not one of soudee or soudeement. The distinction is maintained between sudement and sudeement here, but unaccented spelling variants under sudement may well be read as accented and be interpreted as variants of sudeement.
