That's actually a very tricky word when you just hear it
There are many words that sounds exactly the same but are written differently
Paix (peace) from pax in latin so it has an X at the end
but you also have
Paie (or "paye" = salary) from the verb "payer" / to pay (same pronunciation)
Pet (= fart), from "petard = firecracker"
Many different meanings as you can see...
So be careful in using it! Jean-Christophe Lecocq gave us this great info and cautions :)
