A former province of France, in the south of the country.
Origin of Languedoc
French Languedoc, from langue d'oc (“the language of oc”), from Dante Alighieri’s De vulgari eloquentia, where he wrote in Latin: “nam alii oc, alii si, alii vero dicunt oil” (‘some say òc, others say sì, others say oïl’). Based on the Occitan word òc (“yes”), in contrast to Old French oïl (now French oui).
