un archet

Bonjour!  Today's word of the day (French) is un archet.  It means a bow, as used in music.
  • Le violoncelliste frotte la corde avec son archet pour la mettre en vibration. Ainsi excitée, la corde peut vibrer selon plusieurs modes.
The violinist strokes the strings with his bow to make them vibrate.  Thus stirred, the strings can vibrate in various tones.
