Tenant or Tenet
Tenant or Tenet :
These two words come from the same Latin root, tenere, meaning “to hold" but they have very different meanings.
“Tenet" is the rarer of the two, meaning a belief that a person holds:
“Avoiding pork is a tenet of the Muslim faith."
In contrast, the person leasing an apartment from you is your tenant.
(She holds the lease.)
