sudeement (s.xii1)

[dd]

[ FEW: 12,335b subitare; Gdf: 7,994a soudeement; GdfC: ; TL: 9,701 sode 1 (sodement) / 9,701 soder (sodeement); DEAF: ; DMF:  sode (sodement); TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 3240b subitare ]
sodeement,  soteiment,  soudeement;  sudaiment,  sudeiement,  soutément 3456 subdeement,  susdeement  

FEW and TL consider sodeement and sodement as deriving from different etymologies: sodeement from subitare, sodement from subitus. Also, Gdf separates soudement 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.
