suffrauntement (s.xiii2/4)


[FEW: *12,401a sufferre; Gdf: 7,504c soufranment; GdfC: ; TL: 9,736 sofrir (sofranment); DEAF:  sofrir (*); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  suffrant adj. (suffrantly); MED: ; DMLBS: ]

The reading suffrauntement is rejected by the editor in favour of suffraument as the line is hypermetric. He suggests the form has been affected by repentement on the following line. The reading is restored here as the form, as a regular adverbial derivative of the adjective suffrant may be a creation for the rhyme.
