- In Latin, "tenebris" is the dative and ablative plural of "tenebra", which means "darkness".
- A limen or a liminal point is the threshold of a physiological or psychological response. A stimulus is perceivable on one side of a limen but not on the other side. It is borrowed from the Latin word "limen" which means "threshold".
