Word: Repertoire

Repertoire [Noun]

Sentence: Because people communicate in culturally specific clichés, your repertoire of proverbs should be extensive. If an Arabic speaker says something about adding more water to mud, you’ll need to know that the English equivalent is adding insult to injury. (Source: www.nytimes.com)

Meaning: Stock of items, qualities and actions

How To Remember?

The “repert-” should remind you of the word “repeat”. And “-oire” should remind you of “choir” which refers to a group of musicians. Thus, your show would not just have a single song but multiple songs – a stock of songs, a repertoire of songs.
