Renitent is an adjective that means resistant or recalcitrant.

Our word of the day has evolved from the Latin word reniti (ren EAT ee) which means ‘to resist.’ A person described as renitent is usually someone who resists constraints or compulsion.

There was a lot of pressure on Gina to sell her house, but she resisted the pressure and remained where she was. In the end, having such a renitent personality paid off. The house is now worth nearly two million dollars.
