coward =couard Fr

https://uselessetymology.com/2017/12/05/the-etymology-of-coward/
Coward comes from the Old French word coart, from the Latin coda or cauda, meaning “tail (of an animal).” As a result, the word likely came to imply fear in a metaphorical sense—an animal’s tail tucked between its legs.


Etiquette
https://www.french-etiquette.com/what-is-the-etiquette/
The notion of etiquette is of French origin and results from the practices at the court of King Louis XIV of France. Etiquette is a set of rules, social norms, called “good manners” that govern our life in society.

sabotage 
https://sparkfiles.net/sabotage
Workers in the Netherlands at the time wore a traditional wooden shoe call a “sabot” and consequently the gears of the textile looms were constructed of wood. 
In order to prevent machines from essentially taking over their jobs the workers threw their sabots into the wooden gears of the textile looms to break them-  hence was born the term “sabotage”.
