Word Play

New word learnt today: Tenet

Pronounced: Ten - net

Definition: To hold a belief to be true.

Meaning: Any opinion, principle, dogma, belief, or doctrine, which a person holds or maintains as true.

In a sentence: You have a tenet that we should work on paper. I say we should change that belief and work in the computer.

Memory trick: Ten - et

Ten reminds of tend or likely to do
Tenet in Latin means "he holds"
So remember "tend" or "he holds" a belief
