Linguistic Note on Entourage

The word entourage is a French one, meaning neighborhood or surroundings.

Its pronunciation is something similar to on-too-rahzh, but the vowel sounds have subtleties.

In (natural language) English the word has come to mean the people one surrounds oneself with, usually in the context of celebrity lifestyles (although I learn that it became the fashionable term for posse or gang among pretentious teenagers in the early 2010's).
