A coffin is a funerary box used for viewing or keeping a corpse, either for burial or cremation. The word took 2 different paths. Old French cofin, originally meaning basket, became coffin in English; its modern French form, couffin, means cradle. A difference is often made between coffin and casket: the latter is usually understood to denote a 4-sided (almost always rectangular) funerary box, while a coffin is usually 6-sided.
