prenosticacioun (c.1360-79)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 9,436a prognosticus; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: 7,1978 pronosicacïon; DEAF:  pronostique (*); DMF:  pronostication; TLF: ; OED:  prenostication n.; MED:  prenosticacioun n.; DMLBS: 2404 praegnosticatio ]

FEW, DMF, and TL all consider this lexeme a graphical variant of [pronosticacion] (not attested in Anglo-Norman), although etymologically the pre- reflects the use of a different prefix (as is attested in medieval Latin).
