Norman contributions to the English language ala Garrison Keillor

In his weekly podcast for September 24, 2008, humorist Garrison Keillor commemorates the 1066 Norman invasion of England with a discussion of how the French language affected food and cooking terms.

Keillor writes:

From the Norman invasion we get the word for supper — super, "to take one's evening meal" — as well as the word for dinner. In Old French, the word was disner, which evolved from a Latin word meaning "to break fast." A dinner entrée might feature any of these types of meat whose English names were derived from French.
