Thanks, se16teddy.Yes. “Abysmal” means “extremely bad”.
Thanks, lingo.That list defines abysmal as bottomless. I don’t think I would use either word to describe ignorance, personally.
Thanks, kentix.Abysmal comes from abyss, which means an immeasurably deep place (at least poetically, since some abysses that were previously immeasurable are now measurable).
