Devoir is a noun that refers to a duty or responsibility.

Our word of the day comes from the Latin word debere (day BEAR ay) which means ‘to owe.’ A devoir is something we owe to a person or group of people. I suppose I didn’t have to offer Elizabeth my coat after it had gotten cold, but I felt I needed to do my devoir as a gentleman.
