History and etymology of inarguable

The adjective 'inarguable' is a combination of the prefix 'in-' (meaning 'not' or 'without') and the word 'arguable,' which itself is derived from the verb 'argue.' 'Argue' comes from the Middle English word 'arguen,' which traces its roots to the Old French term 'arguer' and ultimately to the Latin 'arguere,' meaning 'to make clear' or 'to prove.' When we add the prefix 'in-' to 'arguable,' we create the opposite meaning, indicating something that is not open to dispute or argument and is unquestionable or beyond debate. The etymology of 'inarguable' underscores its role in describing statements, facts, or ideas that are so evident or undeniable that they do not require debate or discussion, emphasizing their self-evident nature.
