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)
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.
