Today's French Word

Here's a word that still trips me up from time to time:

Or. Its first meaning is "gold"- that's pretty easy to remember.
Its second meaning is "However". So often you'll see sentences that begin something like:
"Or, Louis XV.... " It's pretty easy to mistake this for the English "or".
At least, it is for me.
