Abstract

The article explains the origin of the French expression tirer une lettre de change, which is opaque for present-day speakers. Originally, it was the money that was drawn (home) by means of a bill of exchange, but already in the second half of the 16th century the verb tirer "to draw" could also take as a direct object the bill itself, thereby obscuring the original meaning.
