Pronounced: rih-PYOON, verb
Notes: I parsed the word incorrectly and thus had the meaning wrong
The word layette is “garments, clothing, or bedding for a newborn baby”
Our word came into English in the mid-1800s
Background / Comments
I think I have run across this word, and get about 50-75% of the meaning from the context, but that was not enough to define it properly. I don’t even remember where I read this word. It comes from French; specifically, the Middle French word laiete (small coffer), related to laie (chest).
