This paper examines the collocations corresponding to fulfillment verbs and their nominal bases in Anglo-Norman French through an exhaustive scrutiny of the chanson de geste Beuve de Hamptone (end of the 12th century). The analysis concerning the fulfillment verbs is formalized through the three simple standard lexical functions Reali, Facti et Labrealij, as well as through complex functions and configurations of lexical functions that contain these three mentioned simple functions. The bases of the collocations are described in terms of semantic labels that, as the lexical functions, are part of the Explanatory Combinatorial Lexicology. The paper includes a large number of examples and makes numerous remarks about the translation from Anglo-Norman to Modern French.
