Have you heard the word indubitably? Even though you may not hear it every day, it’s an informal word you can use whenever it’s convenient. It may be similar to undoubtedly and doubtless, but it still has different meanings.

Knowing the precise meaning of indubitably will help you use it more often than you already are.

Indubitably meaning

What does indubitably mean? It means being so certain about something impossible to doubt or question. You use it when you want to imply that something is too evident or without a doubt. It’s the opposite of doubtable or arguable.

Examples:

Last weekend together has indubitably made our relationship stronger.
She was indubitably the best student in our class.
They looked different but were indubitably his parents.

This word is an adverb with the same meaning as the adjective indubitable and the nouns indubitableness and indubitability.

How is indubitably different than undoubtedly and doubtless?

Although all three words have a similar meaning, indubitably are the strongest of all. While all of them mean “without a doubt,” doubtless can also mean “probably,” while undoubtedly is a bit stronger than doubtless.

However, if you want to say that something is impossible to be doubted or questioned, you may want to use the strongest adverb of all three—indubitably.

How do you spell indubitably?

You may have a problem spelling “indubitably” only because it’s not a word you use every day. However, once you understand its meaning, you’ll probably use it more often, at least when it’s convenient.

Therefore, do try to learn how to spell it correctly.
