  1. unfathomable

    Infinite (Latin in, not, and finis, limit) signifies without bounds or limits in any way, and may be applied to space, time, quantity, or number. Countless, innumerable, and numberless, which should be the same as infinite, are in common usage vaguely employed to denote what it is difficult or practically impossible to count or number, tho perhaps falling far short of infinite; as, countless leaves, the countless sands on the seashore, numberless battles, innumerable delays. So, too, boundless, illimitable, limitless, measureless, and unlimited are loosely used in reference to what has no apparent or readily determinable limits in space or time; as, we speak of the boundless ocean. Infinite space is without bounds, not only in fact, but in thought; infinite time is truly eternal. Compare synonyms for ETERNAL.

How to use unfathomable in a sentence?

  1. Nancy Snow:

    It's not only rare, but it's really culturally unfathomable, the Japanese people can't imagine having a gun culture like we have in United States. This is a speechless moment. I really feel at a loss for words.

  2. Daniel Bakewell:

    I cannot express how overwhelmingly pained I am at the loss of such a beautiful person as Jackie Avant.

  3. Jason Baron:

    I remain mystified by the fact that the use of a private e-mail account apparently went either unnoticed or unremarked upon during the four-year tenure in office of the former secretary, simply put, where was everyone ? Is there any record indicating that any lawyer, any FOIA officer, any records person, any high-level official ever respectfully confronted the former secretary with reasonable questions about the practice of sending e-mails from a private account ? It is unfathomable to me that this would not have been noticed and reported up the chain.

  4. Sylvia Loehrmann:

    It was a Spanish language exchange programme and they were flying home after having what was probably the most wonderful time of their lives, it's so tragic, so sad, so unfathomable.

  5. Kris Mohandie -LRB- left -RRB-:

    I ’d say one of the things that I never ceased to be amazed by is the triumph of the human spirit to endure through... unfathomable pain, what families live with when they have these kinds of unanswered questions. Even though I’ve seen it throughout my career, there’s never a time when I ’m not amazed by the people that survive and endure … I do believe we will have helped answer some very significant questions throughout these different investigations.
