[non-shuh-lahnt, non-shuh-lahnt, -luh nt] /ˌnɒn ʃəˈlɑnt, ˈnɒn ʃəˌlɑnt, -lənt/

coolly unconcerned, indifferent, or unexcited; casual:
His nonchalant manner infuriated me.
casually unconcerned or indifferent; uninvolved

1734, from French nonchalant, present participle of nonchaloir “be indifferent to, have no concern for” (13c.), from non- “not” (see non-) + chaloir “have concern for,” ultimately from Latin calere “be hot” (see calorie). French chaland “customer, client” is of the same origin. Related: Nonchalantly.
