Hors d'œuvre

Hors d'œuvre (French [ɔʁˈdœvʁ] literally 'outside the work'; English IPA: /ɔrˈdɝv/) or appetizers are food items served before the main courses of a meal. The French (singular and plural) is hors d'œuvre; in English, the œ ligature is usually replaced by the 2-letter sequence "oe" with the plural often written as "hors d'oeuvres" and pronounced IPA: /ɔrˈdɝvz/.
