Does anyone happen to have a list (even a partial list) of old French words, that are no longer used in the French language, with their modern language equivalents (especially alchemy-related terms)?

It would be very helpful for translating old French texts.

Thank you.

Thanks, Androgynus. I've seen the second link, but missed the first. It's a good start, but likely does not include many alchemical/chymical terms.

You can always add 'alchemical'/'chymical' to the Google search keywords and see what comes up, if anything...

Like I said, at least it's a start...
