Summary

This dictionary contains a word list of 10,993 English-French cognates (words with the same or similar spelling and meaning in both languages), including some loan words from other languages. A systematic review of the Larousse "Dictionnaire Moderne Francais--Anglais" (1960) provided this list of cognates. Deceptive cognates, or words which have the same spelling in the two languages but different meanings, were noted in the Larousse dictionary, but in order to ensure that no deceptive cognate was contained in the list, "Les Faux Amis" (1946) by Koessler and Derocquigny and Seward's "Dictionary of French Deceptive Cognates" (1947) were compared with the word list. For words with only partial congruence of meaning, congruent meanings or contexts of similarity are specified. False or deceptive cognates are not included. An introductory section describes the methods used to compile the dictionary and offers a discussion of the occurrence and utility of cognates in general. The word list itself is alphabetical, from French to English, with cognate frequency ratings and their sources noted in some cases. Appendixes list the words frequency-rated in each of three sources.
