Terco is stubborn. I learned this word some time back when I was teaching a class on manners. I don’t really remember why the word was important to the class, but I did hear something recently that struck me as funny which helps me remember the word even better.

We live in the state of Yucatan and the people here are called Yucatecos. My friend told me that sometimes people from other parts of Mexico call them Yucatercos because they are stubborn. I will stay out of the debate as to whether the people here are stubborn or not. But, it is an easy way to remember that terco means stubborn.
