French Middle Language

Middle French is a historical language that developed from Latin between the 9th century and the 14th century. It was then replaced by the Oïl languages, which are a part of the Romance family. Middle French influenced the formation of all modern languages in Western Europe (including English) to various extents. The Middle French language was spoken in what is now France and northern Italy during the 14th and 15th centuries. It was used by authors such as Christine de Pizan, Jean Froissart, Chretien de Troyes and Geoffrey Chaucer, who wrote "The Canterbury Tales".
