3. Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856)
TENET. Which he holds. There are two ways of stating the tenure in an action 
of waste. The averment is either in the tenet and the tenuit; it has a 
reference to the time of the waste done, and not to the time of bringing the 
action. 
     2. When the averment is in the tenet the plaintiff on obtaining a 
verdict, will recover the place wasted, namely, that part of the premises in 
which the waste was exclusively done, if it were done in a par only, 
together with treble damages. But when the averment is in the tenuit, the 
tenancy being at an end, he will have judgment for his damages only. 2 
Greenl. Ev. 652.
