Tips: Intangible is derived from the Latin in tangere, which combines the prefix in-, "not" with tangere, "to touch." Something intangible cannot be touched because it does not exist in a describable, physical form. An emotion, for example, is something intangible; it exists and is real, but can't be touched physically. Intangible can also be a noun and refers to things that can not be quantified because they are not physical or material. See also: tangible.
