The Dictionnaire étymologique de l’ancien français (DEAF) is a fundamental dictionary of Old French, encompassing the timespan between 842 (date of the Strasbourg Oath between Louis the German and Charles the Bald against Lothair I transmitted in the Old High German and Old French languages) until the mid-14th century (the epochal boundary with Middle French on philological and social grounds).

The project has developed a workflow to convert the dictionary entries into RDF triple. The results will be available shortly.
