Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day
Tuesday, August 26th peignoir Fine-toothed Word of the Day:
For occasions when an ordinary nightgown won't do — these would mostly be literary occasions — you may want to don a peignoir, and only then practice the pronunciation in order to impress your friends. Though it looks like noir ("black") might be lurking in this word, the root is actually peign ("to comb"), with -oir doing suffix duty.
