Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
I tried to reason with her, to coax her into a more tolerant frame of mind…but…she just dug her feet in. (Coward’s “Relative Values”)
dig in one’s feet = turn obstinate/ pigheaded
Thanks for your efforts.
I'm not sure I'd go with "pigheaded" as that suggests a degree of stupidity, but "obstinate", yes.
