aveugle

See also: aveuglé

FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Middle French aveugle < Old French avogle, from Late Latin ab oculis (without eyes), possibly a calque of Greek ex ops or from a Latin construction viduus or vacuus ab oculis. Less likely from a Latin *alboculus, from albus + oculus. The current French form is either an exception to the normal sound shift from Latin '-cl-' or a semi-learned term; cf. the dialectal and popular aveuil (older aveule, avule). See also œil.
