Old French[edit]

Aims, roughly in this order:

  1. create Old French sections when one is not present, and the term can be shown to be in use in Old French (WT:AFRO)
  2. remove links from this page for terms that have the relevant Old French section
  3. correct links, for example to an Old French form that we have instead of a red link
  4. if term in etymology appears to be unattestable, do nothing

Anyone can edit this page, as long as the edits are 'correct'.
