"Pique" amendment

A couple weeks ago I made the egregious error of omitting "pique" from Peak & Peek. Consider this little striptease my apology. I hope it piques your interest... in grammar!


  1. How about Ensure, insure, and assure?...

  2. Pique also can mean irritation or insult, especially to one's pride, as in "a fit of pique".

    Pique, pronounced "Pee-KAY", is a type of looping stitch in embroidery or a looping fringe in embellishment, even though it's spelled the same.
