Middle French[edit]


From Old French achoison, achaison, ochoison, from Latin occasiō, occasiōnem, with the initial -a- due to influence from accusatiō (the Old French word in many cases having the sense of "accusation"); an alternative etymology is that it is a calque of Latin occasiō using achoir.


achoison f (plural achoisons)

  1. occasion
