Umpire—Compulsory accessory in cricket; Without which there will be no game. The word's predecessor is traced back to 'Old French'—the language spoken by the people of northern France between the 8th and mid-14th centuries AD, called 'Old French.' The word 'nonper' (nonper) in that language is the root of the word umpire. 'in a dispute between two men who is called as a judge'—this is the etymological meaning of the word 'nonpar'. In medieval English this word came as 'noumper'. That was by 1350.

After 1440, the 'n' dropped from this 'Middle English' word to become 'owmpere'. By 1475 the word had changed slightly to 'an oumper'. Now when people say 'an umpire' – it was actually pronounced 'a numpire' (a numpire).
