- A waterfall.
A sault (pronounced soo in English) is waterfall or a rapids in pre-17th century French. A number of places in North America have this word as part of their names, as they were occupied by French colonists and settlers (New France). Sault is derived from Latin saltus ("a leap", from salīre "to leap/jump").
