  1. Wow 12 French words, no less! And some don’the even have Latin origins… That tells a lot about the ability of the English language to borrow foreign words!

  2. A lot of French words in there. I understand they are in an English dictionary. But can they be considered as English word? Ingénue, Dénouement, Lassitude, Désuétude, Ratatouille.

  3. I love how most of these words have got Latin roots. Beautiful words. The most beautiful one is probably the first one 😉 but I may be biased!…
