Palaeography, history and Romance languages are among the other subjects to which especial importance is given.
This change has, however, taken place in all Romance languages except Sardinian.
The root kol is common to all the Teutonic nations, while in French and other Romance languages derivatives of the Latin carbo are used, e.g.
It was by means of their horsemen that the Austrasian Franks established their superiority over their neighbours, and in time created the Western Empire anew, while from the word caballarius, which occurs in the Capitularies in the reign of Charlemagne, came the words for knight in all the Romance languages.
This difference is parallel to the relation between the Latin ille and the article of the Romance languages.
