Linguistic LingField(s):  Historical Linguistics

Query:   I am creating a list of French word pairs that are semantically and
orthographically/phonologically similar but that are not morphologically
related, such as the broil-boil pairs used by Stocakll and Marantz (2006).
An example I have found in French is _couve-couvre_ 'protect-cover'.

Any references to articles or discussions of this phenomenon would be
appreciated. I will post a summary. Thank you.
