    NOT A TEACHER

    Example sentences can be found in places such as the Corpus of Contemporary American English ( Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA) ). I've just taken a look and there is no shortage of sentences containing this word.

    There's no single word.

    'to choose (matching) accessories'.
