 Definition: 
\Vogue\, n. [F. vogue a rowing, vogue, fashion, It. voga,
fr. vogare to row, to sail; probably fr. OHG. wag?n to move,
akin to E. way. Cf. {Way}.]
1. The way or fashion of people at any particular time;
   temporary mode, custom, or practice; popular reception for
   the time; -- used now generally in the phrase in vogue.

         One vogue, one vein, One air of thoughts usurps my
         brain.                                --Herbert.

         Whatsoever its vogue may be, I still flatter myself
         that the parents of the growing generation will be
         satisfied with what ?? to be taught to their
         children in Westminster, in Eton, or in Winchester.
                                               --Burke.

         Use may revive the obsoletest words, And banish
         those that now are most in vogue.     --Roscommon.

2. Influence; power; sway. [Obs.] --Strype.
