    English speakers often borrow words and phrases from other languages, and these often become used in ordinary speech as if they were ordinary English. Words enter spoken English sometimes long before they appear in dictionaries.

    The phrase, Ut tensio, sic vis, is often used by mechanical engineers who know the history of science.

    Whether a specific utterance is a word in English depends on several factors. I believe that if one English speaker uses a word with the expectation that another English speaker will understand her, it has become a "word in the English language."

    Like most things in English,

    I might ask now, "Capiche paisano?" which looks like Italian, but was used in the movie Godfather. and English speakers understood the meaning.

    The Latin word "ut" (pronounced "oot") means "in order to". It is used with the subjunctive form of verbs.

    There is no English word "ut".

    Indeed please quote the context in which you saw the word "ut", then we can more fully answer your question.

    I assumed you meant the Latin word 'ut', but I hope the huge range of other answers you've received has shown you how important it is to give the CONTEXT when you ask about a single, unfamiliar word.

    If it is indeed the Latin word, it means approximately 'in order that', or 'so that'. "He went away in order that he might calm down." "We fought the enemy in order that they would leave our territory."

    It is always followed by a subjunctive form of the verb.

      Robert Hooke published his famous law as an anagrams, which with the letters properly arranged was read: Ut tensio, sic vis. Hooke was not quite sure of his discovery, and afraid Newton would steal his ideas, so he chose this method to establish his idea. F = kx
