comment How did French “cacher” divide into English “cache” and “cachet”?
If cachet means a seal on an official document I would imagine that the seal is hiding what's inside from public view.

comment What is the appropriate word to define the state of emotion in the following scenario?
There are many possible words for it but they would be selected based on the level of discomfort being observed. And we don't know what that level is. Hence we cannot provide an appropriate word.

comment What is the appropriate word to define the state of emotion in the following scenario?
I'm just saying that his emotional state could range from "completely panic-stricken" because he believes he's just ruined his whole afterlife, to mild annoyance at realizing he's going to have to confess next week in church if he remembers to. Tone of voice and color in the face might be used to disambiguate if we were actually there. Because we weren't there we can only make educated guesses from the information we have. And based on that information I'd say he's not really that upset just mildly annoyed.

comment What is the appropriate word to define the state of emotion in the following scenario?
If you can't recognize or put a name to the emotion you are observing, but you know it's bad, then ask, "What's the matter?"

comment Is it grammatically correct to use 'Certification training' in this context?
I probably would order the scope description as: "... of the Fluke Networks Etherscope® network analyzer." Also, by saying that you received certification training I might conclude that while you received the training you did not actually receive your certification. IF you did receive certification, then just say, "Fluke Networks certified in the operation of the Etherscope® network analyzer" Or because of the way your bulleted list is constructed: simply 1. Certification. o Fluke Networks o Etherscope network analyzer operation.
