Example text

Interestingly enough, there are examples of French loanwords in Middle High German which were themselves borrowed from Old Frankish into Gallo-Romance in the Merovingian period and then reborrowed.

By far the most dramatic foreign influence during the Middle High German period comes from French. From the Second Crusade (1147) onward German knights had extensive contact with French language, literature, and culture. The influence of French language and culture on German knightly culture was sustained by numerous personal and political ties. Children of German nobles often had French tutors and many young noblemen completed their education in France. German knights routinely spent extended periods in France, often in service of French courts.
