   Old French word references may also be found in modern French dictionaries such as the Cassell's French Dictionary (hardcover edition) and other older texts.  The Old French word definitions may often be found under classical "class." or figurative "fig." 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 words, and these definitions can be verified by researching the appropriate Latin or Greek dictionaries.
