French phrases hidden in English words. A lot of English words come from French words that we borrowed.
But some English words contain whole French phrases within them.
Let's take a petite tour! What is vinegar but sour wine?
And that's exactly where the word comes from too. Vinegar is "vin aigre," or sour wine.
Curfew goes back to the medieval regulation where the village bell would ring in the evening
as a signal for everyone to put out their fires. Hence curfew "couvre feu" or cover fire.
A dandelion has notched, pointed petals that
look a bit--like lion's teeth? In any case that's where we get the word dandelion from,
French "dent de lion," or lion's tooth. We also get our name for the spikiest animal we know
from a French phrase. A porcupine is a "porc épine" or spiky pig.
Denim, that coolest of cool American looks, got its start as a twill fabric from Nîmes,
a southern French city known for textile manufacturing. Denim is from Nimes, "de Nîmes."
Ok, it's pretty obvious that debonair is a French word, but have you ever broken it down?
"De bon air," of good air, a debonaire person has a good disposition, a nice air about them.
A mortgage is a type of pledge. If the loan can't be paid, the lender gets the property.
If the loan is paid off, the property is the borrowers. When either one of those things happens,
the pledge dies. The mortgage is a a death pledge, "mort gage."
Mayday is a distress signal for when you really need help. It comes from "venez m'aider!"
or come help me! And this little tour of French phrases should help you get to know these
English words a little bit better.
