Description
From the ninth century on the Normans invaded the east coast of England and the northwestern coast of the Frankish kingdom. King Alfred defeated the Danish army at Edington. In 878 Guthrum, the Danish leader accepted terms, known as the Treaty of Wedmore, which created the Danelaw. Rollo, the leader of Norman invaders underwent a defeat beneath the walls of Chartres. In 911 he made peace with Charles the Simple, king of the West Franks at Sainte-Clair-sur-Epte and was granted the land called Normandy. The Scandinavian element in English was due to the Norman invasions of England. And the introduction of French words into English was also due to men of the same race as those who brought Scandinavian words to England. The Normans adopted the French language and spoke a dialect known as Norman French. After the Norman Conquest this dialect was, for 300 years, the official language of the court, of justice, and of politics. Some curious French loan-words are taken up and their etymological meanings and changes of meaning are examined in this paper.
