Synonyms Ignorant, Illiterate, Unlettered, Unlearned, uneducated. Ignorant is one of basic among these words (as, he could be an ignorant fellow), except where it is limited to some topic or point (as, ignorant of this methods of the whole world). Illiterate indicates not having read or examined, or, especially, not able to review. The illiterate are presumably ignorant beyond their work, not necessarily therefore; the ignorant are necessarily illiterate. Today it really is as reprehensible to be illiterate as to be ignorant. Unlettered is used often for illiterate and sometimes for unlearned, with matching steps of blame. Unlearned —that is, not learned—is, like ignorant, either basic or special: as, becoming unlearned in theology; as discovering could be the privilege of couple of, it is really not particularly blameworthy become even typically unlearned.
