Where did French originate from?
French is a romance language. Therefore it can trace most of its words back to Latin. However, the French empire was very, very large. France had colonies across Africa and the Middle East, along with North America for a brief period. Some French words are therefore of Arabic origin. In short, Latin and Arabic.

They're actually from Belgium.
'Frenching' is actually the technique of cutting something into long strips rather than a description of where Fries originate. So the are "french" fries, referring to the sty…le they are cut
There are many people who has this surname Cox, Southeast Asians, Russians, Middle Eastern, South Americans, and most commonly seen as English and Irish surname Cox. The last …name Cox is rare in France, but it is also a French surname and it could either be of French origin or Latin origin. The French surname Cox is perhaps a variant of Cots, which perhaps is also a variant of Cot. This surname Cot and other variants are mostly found in Southern France, near borders of Spain, and also found in North and Eastern Spain. This surname Cot/Cots/Cox could derived from Latin name Cote, meaning "stone". Another possible origin is that it could be of French origin, derived from French surname Cotte, meaning "coat of mail", a name for a maker of chain mails.

Belgium. The way they are cut is the french way, so they are called french fries in America. in France they are just called frites, or fries.
"French Exit" is merely a British equivalent of what is known in some places (mostly coastal cities in the northeast of the US) as the "Irish Goodbye." It describes a situatio…n where someone covertly leaves a party/event/etc.. without saying goodbye. The French themselves call that "filer à l'anglaise" (to leave the English way)
The double (F/Bb) was originated in Germany, not in France.
Paris and its surroundings

Salut. Answer: French is developed from Latin as it was spoken in early Rome. It is actually divided into 3 types; early french; middle french (16e - 18e century); and, modern… french. Like english, modern french is heavily integrated with influences from other languages.
Early horns were less complex than modern horns, consisting of brass tubes with a slightly flared opening (the bell) wound around a few times. These early "hunting" horns were… originally played on a hunt, often while mounted, and the sound they produced was called a recheat. Change of pitch was effected entirely by the lips (the horn not being equipped with valves until the 19th century). Without valves, only the notes within the harmonic series are available. The horn was used, among other reasons, to call hounds on a hunt and created a sound most like a human voice, but carried much farther.
Please don't call it a French horn. The technical name is just horn, because, also in answer to your question, horns are from Germany. I don't know why they are called French …horns, because they are not French. But horns originated in Germany, and originally had no valves.
English is not directly descended from French, but it is heavily influenced by it. French is a romance language, meaning is is a direct descendent of Latin, the language o…f ancient Rome. English, on the other hand is a Germanic language, related to German, Dutch, and the Scandinavian languages. In 1066, a Norman French army invaded and conquered England. Over the next few centuries, the Old English spoken by the lower class was heavily influenced by the French-speaking rulers. As much as 60% of modern English vocabulary is traced to this French influence. However, the structure of English remained Germanic.
