Today's French

This one has an interesting etymology...

Entamer: v. To begin, to cut the first slice off of (i.e.- a loaf of bread), to engage in, to start (a conversation), to make a break in (the battle lines, the skin, etc.)

From Entame: The end slice, the first slice (of a loaf of bread, cheese, etc.)
