   The above glossary (G) lists specific references to many Old French words that were in common use during the 15th century.  Its references may also be found in modern French dictionaries such as Cassell's French Dictionary hardcover edition and other older texts.  The Old French word definitions may often be found under classical or figurative definitions.  If you can't find the appropriate definition in the French section of the dictionary, try doing a reverse look-up in the English section.  The 15th century Old French language made heavy use of both Latin and Greek.  These Latin and Greek word definitions can be verified by researching the appropriate Latin or Greek dictionaries.  Some word definitions have survived almost completely intact into modern times, and can be located by simply typing them into a search engine.
