Category:Old French derivations

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
Deep down, no one really believes they have a right to live. But this death sentence generally stays tucked away, hidden beneath the difficulty of living. If that difficulty is removed from time to time, death is suddenly there, unintelligibly.
Jean Baudrillard

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.
