French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Origin uncertain.

  • The word first appears in the phrases chanson du/de riochet, fable du ricochet. This is apparently related to other story-titles such as the fable du rouge kokelet; other dialectal terms such as ripoton(duckling) and Norman recoquet(chick) has led to theories that the word originally indicated a 'young cock'. The sense-development is unclear.
