There is no such thing as old/middle French, but rather many distinct dialects. Just over a hundred years ago, those speaking French in France were a minority albeit a significant minority.

comment How and why have some words changed to a complete opposite?
@Pete in that case the TNY has simply forgotten the numerical value of the term, the destructive portion how remains. I wouldnt call that a reversal. If decimate means death to 1 in 10 the opposite would be something positive to 1 in 10 of some group.
