From an article in a magazine:
"All they need are broaches for those dresses."
They don't need "brooches"?
"To broach" as in "to broach a subject" means to begin speaking about a subject. This is a verb.
"A brooch" is a decorative pin. It is a noun.
Many words sound alike but are spelled differently and have different meanings. Pleas ewes yor dick shun airy.
