Pervious is an adjective that means penetrable or accessible.

The Latin prefix P-E-R means ‘through’ while V-I-A means ‘road.’ Together they refer to ‘that which may be passed through.’ You may be familiar with the negative form of our word of the day — impervious, which describes something that cannot be penetrated. When something can be penetrated, it is pervious.
