(pronounced TAN-jih-bull)

This word is most often used as an adjective, but it can also be used as a noun, especially when referring to material assets or property. Something is tangible when it can be physically touched or perceived by some other sense like smell, taste, sight or hearing. Something is also tangible when it is real or provable, such as a fact or evidence.

Example: Russell’s concept for the themed hotel lobby was a desert oasis. He wanted guests to feel refreshed and overwhelmed upon arrival, and he planned on achieving this with tangible elements of an remote locale: captivating fountains, enchanting flora and exotic scents.
