#2513 - 05/18/00 02:31 PM Re: Repoire?
I don't think it's related to repertoire.
Here's where I first saw it:
"Incan diviners and augurs also had no previous clue to the impending invasion, despite their repoire with the spirit world."
And here are the top hits from a Google search for "repoire":
"...quickly make new friends and develop a repoire with their teachers..."
"We had so many pleasant sensations between us, a fine repoire, yet I felt a bit crazed unknowing whether or not if this repoire is real, or a phantom of what I want to be real."
"I decided we had enough of a repoire to give out my phone number..."
"You feel a bondedness to them, a connectedness, you feel a sense of repoire."
Something of a mixed bag, as you can see, but it seems clear that the sense is the same as "rapport."
Possibly useful sidenote: I didn't get any hits for "repiore."
Another interesting side note: repoire is number 41 the "Top 1000 Not Found" list at http://www.dict.org, with the same number of attempted searches as "recieve."
And, paulb, I rushed right over to post this after trying to find "repoire" in many online dictionaries and doing several extensive web searches. I'm supposed to be revising a paper, you see. . .
