The Latin adjective rotundus, which comes from broken ("wheel" ), came to our language as resounding . The term can refer to what is round (that is, it has a circular shape).

The most common use of concept , however, it is linked to what it is sharp, conclusive or categorical . For example: “The presentation of the Spanish singer in the Swiss stadium was a resounding success”, "The people, through their vote, made a resounding rejection of the neo-liberal policies proposed by the candidates", "The coach was resounding and said he does not intend to resign".

Likewise, this term is also used frequently in the field of television, specifically to refer to the success or failure of programs or series. A clear example can be the following: "The end of the series The prince was a resounding success since it became one of the most viewed spaces of the small screen during the last years in Spain".

And this, in the same way, would move to the field of music or even cinema. Hence the talk of the overwhelming and resounding triumph at the box office of the premieres of numerous productions as well as the concerts of certain artists.

The idea of ​​resounding is often associated with a affirmation or one negation . Suppose that, in a given country , a plebiscite is developed to define the autonomy of a region. If he 93% of the population votes for autonomy, it can be said that the people gave "A resounding yes" to the initiative

On the other hand, if by transcending the news that a government plan to modify the Constitution to enable the president's indefinite reelection, thousands of people congregate in a square to protest, it could be indicated that there were "A resounding no" from the town to the project.

Within the political sphere, specifically in Spain, the word we are analyzing is being used very regularly. Thus, we have been able to read on more than one occasion, media headlines where the resounding “no” of Podemos to agree with the PSOE was made clear if it maintained its agreement with Citizens or the resounding “no” of the leader of the PSOE (Pedro Sánchez) to establish a possible agreement with Mariano Rajoy, leader of the PP and acting President.

The resounding can be determined by the discursive or by the actions. A person You can strongly deny something by the words you speak or by the tone you use in your speech. On the other hand, a tennis player can obtain a resounding victory if he wins his match 6-0 / 6-0 , beyond what you say before or after the encounter.

In the same way, we cannot ignore that Rotundo is also the name of a systematic action herbicide that is composed of glyphosate and that is usually used, as a rule, to carry out what is the control of herbs which are in what is known as the active growth phase.
