Thread: What does "Repor" mean?

  1. #1
    I wanna say it's a French word "Report" with a single 't', but I have searched and searched and found nothing.

    I'm not talking about the "Colbert Report" I'm talking about a word that is pronounced like this: reh - pour.

    I'll use it in sentence: That is a recipe for repor! I don't know how to spell it, so I can't find its definition.

    Does any body know what I'm talking about?

    Do you mean, rapport? (ra - pour). It basically means reputation.

    Sentence - He has a good rapport with his employees.

    Though it wouldn't fit in with your definition. You make it sound like it's a dish.

    "Reputation" doesn't really fit the definition of "rapport", it's more like what jimbo suggests "gets along with".

    A good rapport with your employees would mean you connect with your employees well. You don't even need to add the "good" in front of it either, you could just say:

    "He has a rapport with his employees."

    A good reputation would mean they speak of you well (perhaps as a result of having a good rapport with them).

    Sound about right.

    No but thanks, I "borrowed" one from work. And before I get the reputation of being a thief I should note that I have a good rapport with the IT guy and he let me have it.
