Old French

Etymology

Probably a semi-learned term borrowed partly from Latin b?stia. Compare bisse (modern French biche), which was popularly inherited from a variant (b?stia) of the same word. An alternative hypothesis derives beste from an unattested Vulgar Latin variant form *b?sta (deduced through a supposed diminutive form b?stula), though this is unlikely as it would assume there was a second popular variant of b?stia (b?stia being well attested).

Noun

beste f (oblique plural bestes, nominative singular beste, nominative plural bestes)

  1. beast, animal
