Re: Help me with my latin here…

""tuitive", same root as tuition, so it means "teachable", or, I guess "learnable"? Says the right thing about in-tuitive things, really."

Not quite. I did wonder myself, but different etymology.

Tuition from tueri (to watch, guard)

Intuition from intueri (Consider)

Anyone with a classical Latin education please feel free to correct me, I am not at home with access to proper books so had to trust Google.
