Today's word is untenable, spelled U-N-T-E-N-A-B-L-E.

Untenable is an adjective that means not able to be defended. It can also mean not able to be occupied. Here is the word used in a sentence from The Financial Times by Sarah Hemming.

"Where the piece is at its prickly best is in tracing the narrator's twisted reasoning as he tries to square his desire to continue his comfortable existence with his analysis that it is morally untenable."

The words untenable and its opposite tenable come to us from the Old French verb tenir and ultimately from the Latin verb tenēre, both of which mean "to hold." We tend to use untenable in situations where an idea or position is so off base that holding onto it is unjustified or inexcusable. One way to hold onto the meaning of untenable is to associate it with other tenēre descendants whose meanings are associated with "holding" or "holding onto." Tenacious meaning "holding fast" is one example. Others are contain, detain, sustain, maintain, and retain.
