Obdurate – Word of the Day
[adjective]:somebody who doesn’t change his/her mind; stubborn
The discovery of this word happened back in the mid 15th century. The word is coined from a Latin word ‘obdurare’. Here, ob means in opposition and durare means harden. Later, this word was transformed into another Latin word called ‘obduratus.’ In the late Middle English, obduratus helped form obdurate, which is the current spelling of this word.
