I love learning new words. This week's word is 'tentative'.
I learned it from wisechild who has a shop on Etsy with an eclectic collection of arts and crafts.
tentative ˈtentətiv
not certain or fixed; provisional : a tentative conclusion.
• done without confidence; hesitant : he eventually tried a few tentative steps round his hospital room.
ORIGIN late 16th cent.: from medieval Latin tentativus, from tentare, variant of temptare ‘handle, try.’
