It is my goal to use this word at some point this week:

inhere (inheres!)

verb [ intrans. ] ( inhere in/within) formal
exist essentially or permanently in : the potential for change that inheres within the adult education world.
Law (of rights, powers, etc.) be vested in a person or group or attached to the ownership of a property : the rights inhering in the property they owned.

ORIGIN mid 16th cent. (in the sense [stick, cling to] ): from Latin inhaerere ‘stick to.’
