The word ‘almond’ comes from Old French allemande or allemande, Late Latin mandolin, derived through a form amygdule from the Greek amygdale, an almond. The al- for a- may be due to a confusion with the Arabic article al, the word having first dropped the a- as in the Italian form mandolin; the British pronunciation Armand and the modern Catalan lamella and modern French amended show the true form of the word.
