A great number of words of French origin have entered the English language to the extent that many Latin words have come to the English language.
English contains many words of French origin, such as art, collage, competition, force, machine, police, publicity, role, table, and many other Anglicized French words. According to different sources, around 30% of all English words have a French origin. This fact suggests that 80,000 words should appear in this list.
