English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From French bigot ‎(a bigot, hypocrite), from Middle French bigot, from Old French bigot, originally a derogatory term applied to Normans for their frequent note of the Old English oath bī god ‎(by God). It is not known, however, whether the precise Germanic language of origin is English: compare Middle High German bī got, Middle Dutch bi gode.

An alternate etymology (Liberman, Grammont, et al.) derives the Old French word from Albigot ‎(Albigensian heretic) [1].

Pronunciation[edit]
