Description Words of French origin constitute in Czech a significant part of the loan-words from other languages. They were loaned mostly through German but also direct from French. The dictionary contains an alphabetical list of French loan-words. Each entry is accompanied by morphological categories, factual commentary and French etymon. Some entries involve the pronunciation and variants. The entries are arranged into groups according to kind of loan: direct loan-words from French, loan-words from French through another language,loan-words from another language through French. In the introduction we study them according to their degree of adaptation to Czech from phonetically, morphological and semantic point of view. We compare their occurrence in French, in Polish and in Croatian.
