Write an essay in which you analyze how the Anglo-Saxon language and the Norman French gradually merged through the later Middle Ages, and the effects of the linguistic reconciliation between the older Anglo-Saxon words and the new Norman French words.
Use a minimum of two academic sources to support your argument, neither of which should be your textbook. You may find the following sites helpful in your research:
Online Etymology Dictionary
University of Leeds: Medieval Resources Online—An Annotated List
Newcastle University: Historical Change: English in the 18th Century
