#WOTD: Nescient

Hello hey hi, Fellas! Today we’re going to talk about a word!

Have you ever heard of ‘nescient,’ Fellas? ‘Nescient’ comes from Latin ‘nesciens,’ which is the combination of ‘ne’ (not) and ‘scire’ (to know). So, ‘nescient’ means lacking of knowledge. 

There are some synonyms of ‘nescient,’ such as ‘cluelessness,’ ‘ignorance,’ obliviousness,’ and ‘unawareness.’

 

Example:

  • “He’s very nescient. He usually can’t feel people’s emotion or their sarcasm.”

Do you understand how to use the word nescient now, fellas? :) That’s all I can share for today, fellas. Hope it could be useful for you. Good night<3
