[Homework]2015-08-04 How to Use a Word

Today's word is infrangible, spelled I-N-F-R-A-N-G-I-B-L-E. Infrangible is an adjective that means not capable of being broken or separated into parts. It can also mean not to be infranged or violated.

Here's the word used in a sentence by **** in the **** Blade.

James Bond is content enough with his new freedom on the fringe to make it a permanent lifestyle, but it's his infrangible sense of duty to country and aim that brings him back to the fold when both are threatened.

The word infrangible comes to us via middle French from the late Latin word infrangibilis, and it ultimately derived from the prefix ''in'' and the Latin word frangere, meaning to break. Believe it or not, our word ''break'' is ultimately derived from the same ancient word that gave rise to frangere. Infrangible first appeared in print in English in the 16th century, but the literal meaning ''impossible to break'' was later extended metaphorically to things that cannot or should not be broken.
