Category:Old French derivations

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him; and you are torn by the thought of the unhappiness and night you cast, by the mere fact of living, in the hearts you encounter.
Albert Camus

This category comprises words whose etymologies involve Old French roots.
English words from Old French usually via Middle English. Some of these words however entered Middle English via the Anglo-Norman variant of Old French (cattle, eagle, etc.). Anglo-Norman had distinct sound-features, notably Latin c was preserved and did not become ch as in standard Old French (compare Anglo-Norman catel vs Old French chatel). There were other differences as well.
