   The above glossary (J) lists specific references to many Old French words that were in general use during the 15th century in France.  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 or figurative definitions.  The 15th century Old French language made heavy use of both Latin and Greek words.  These Latin and Greek word definitions can often be verified by researching the appropriate Latin or Greek dictionaries.  Some word definitions have survived almost completely intact into modern times, and can be found by simply typing them into an Internet search engine.
