Tips: Moot is most commonly used as an adjective, as in: "That is a moot point." The word can be looked at as a contradiction of itself since it means both "arguable" and "not worth arguing." The argument is moot because it could be argued forever, so it is debatable, but it's also not worth debating, since neither side will ever win--it is pointless to discuss the argument further.
