Did you know that English has only
15 words that always end in "gue"? Some are common. The word
fatigue is used frequently (especially these crazy days!);
and, of course, we all have a tongue in our mouths.
Less commonly used words include
meringue (a fluffy concoction made from whipped egg whites)
and harangue (an loud and forceful way of responding to
something you don't like).
Interestingly, there are words,
like catalogue, that can sometimes be spelled catalog.
Consult your dictionary to see the variations for yourself!
By the way, I have no colleague
with a brogue (an Irish accent).
