Examples of use of etagere
1. "Seven up, seven down," said Pam Penny of Ancaster, Ontario, whose daughter, 10–year–old Veronica, was eliminated on the French–rooted word "etagere." "Very disappointing.
2. Especially for Canadians to go down on French words." Penny‘s daughter, 10–year–old Veronica, was eliminated on the French–rooted word "etagere." Veronica‘s unusual mannerism of burying her head in hands while concentrating made her a fan favorite during Thursday‘s rounds, but this time the look of despair was for real as she failed to add the extra "e" on the word that describes a cabinet with open shelves.
