inexorable [in-EK-ser-uh-buhl]

adjective
1. unyielding; unalterable
2. not to be persuaded, moved, or affected by prayers or entreaties

I see that this word's been done before, but it was quite a while ago, so I thought it'd be okay. I kept seeing 'inexorable' in a book I'm reading and was annoyed to find I didn't know what it meant, so I thought I'd look it back up and share.
