devoir

Devoir is the first of about 60 words I noted from Fatal Revenant.

de·voir /dəˈvwɑr, ˈdɛvwɑr; Fr. dəˈvwar/

–noun, plural de·voirs /dəˈvwɑrz, ˈdɛvwɑrz; Fr. dəˈvwar/

1. an act of civility or respect.
2. devoirs, respects or compliments.
3. something for which a person is responsible; duty.

[Origin: 1250–1300; ME devoir, deveir, dever < OF devoir (AF deveir, dever) < L débére to owe; cf. debt]
