in education •  last month

This series is particularly tailored for people learning English – English words particularly. Like many languages, English words can be broken down into parts; each part has its own meaning, contributing to the overall meaning of the word itself. Understanding how each word is put together with “parts” helps a learner remember English words easier.

** tenacious** - (adj)


Stubborn. Persistent

In Part:

tena + cious

to hold tightly + [adj]

“Tenacious” shares the same root with “tentacle” (one of the extension “arms” of an octopus].

Literally, tenacious means “holding something tightly in hand”, not letting go.


  1. Tenacious memory.

  2. Tenacious grip.

  3. Tenacious negotiator.
