    Trying to find a word that sounds like 'tort'

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by stubeard, Sep 27, 2010.

    I've looked on search engines and dictionaries but cannot find this word.

    I think it sounds like 'tort' and it means 'held tightly or rigidly'. Like if you hyper-extend your arm and hold it there.

    Can anyone please help? It's driving me mad!
