Unbeknown, Unbeknownst.

Did you know these words?

I didn’t and weirdly I don’t recall ever reading or hearing them either.

I love the sound of them and the usage too.

Google came up with:

without the knowledge of (someone).

“unbeknown to me, she made some inquiries”

So, unbeknown to me, unbeknown had always been an unbeknownst word to me.

The beauty of language.

Funny thing is, auto-correct is red underwaving the word ‘unbeknown’ here, seems like it is unbeknownst to it as well.

Is there any word that you were unaware of?

Do you have a favorite word?

If not, it might just be unbeknownst to you right now.
