About Infrangible

This word comes from French, stemming from the medieval Latin “infrangibilis. “In-” means “not,” and “frangibilis” or “frangere,” meaning “to break.”

Did you Know?

At first glance, it might be easy to mistake “infrangible” with “intangible” since they look so similar. However, to be infrangible is to be unbreakable, whereas something that’s intangible is unable to be touched or grasped because it doesn’t have a physical presence.
