Seignurs, Dames, bien viengez vus!

... if you can read this, you also plainly know at least some English, so there's another reason why you might like to know more about Anglo-Norman and our work to increase its understanding. As we attempt to sketch out in some of the following pages, Anglo-Norman has contributed massively to the present-day English language. No matter what you say or read in English, however 'modern', the legacy of Anglo-Norman is everywhere. And everywhere on the globe where the English language has gone, it has taken Anglo-Norman influences with it. You can't escape these influences, so maybe you will enjoy learning a little more about them.
