Intransigent is an adjective that means uncompromising.

The Latin word transigere (tran SEE jare ay) means ‘to come to an agreement.’ As this word evolved into intransigent, it added the prefix I-N to mean ‘not’ and became a word to mean ‘unable to come to an agreement.’

Everyone else in the family wanted to watch a horror movie last night, but I was intransigent on the issue. I wanted to watch an old John Wayne western and I refused to settle for anything else.
