#10 Uninterested or disinterested?

I can see how interchangeably ‘uninterested’ and ‘disinterested’ are used, but the words are very different.

If you are not interested in (or are bored by) something, you’re uninterested. If you do not have a personal stake in something (or are neutral or impartial), you’re disinterested.

Examples:
John was yawning because he was uninterested in the lecture.
Never think your ex-wife will be disinterested in what you do. 🙂

  1. Oh boy! an ex-wife is never disinterested in your affairs although she’ll try hard to show she is. 😉
    Superb example, Kanika. I’ve been following your posts for some time now, and it’s beautiful to see the simple way in which you bring out these language pieces.

  2. I simply needed to thank you so much yet again. I am not sure the things that I would have taken care of without the actual strategies shown by you over grammar.
