    They don't have a word for entrepreneur, either.

    So, if an entrepreneur ran a business out of his garage, how French would they be?

    The Origins of the Word. Entrepreneurs, Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial. These three words all come from the French verb entreprendre, meaning "to undertake."

    Your response reeks with missing the point.....

    JDog misspelled entrepreneur "entrenpeneur." I put entrepreneur in italics and provided the definition and Merriam-Webster's spelling to illustrate my point.

    That you followed with multiple correct spellings, a definition, and info from Snopes.com is rampant proof that you missed the point.

    At best, you're redundant, Roger....at worst....well, there's that pesky old RTF "terms of service" isn't there...

    And yes, JDog...I got the sarcasm...as I hope you did as well. Roger, however........................................... .......
