Question of the Day
The word is 'queue'. It is the only word in the English language that retains the same pronunciation even when it's missing all but one letter!
The word 'queue' is both a verb and a noun. Queue is derived from the Latin word 'coda', meaning 'tail'. By the 15th century, the French adapted it to form 'queue' also meaning 'tail'. By the 18th century, 'queue' had entered the English lexicon but was used to describe a different kind of tail - a braid of hair. By the 20th century it was being used as a verb meaning 'to line up,' as we use it today.
