    Default Could you explain the meaning of these words?

    Could please explain to me the meaning of these words with some examples?

    ability - capacity - capability - quality - unknowable - uncanny - unwary - untenable

    Thanks so much for your help.

    You can consult a number of dictionaries at onelook.com and let us know if you still have some confusion.

    I have already consulted the on-line dictionaries but I cannot understand how to use these words correcty. For this reason I had asked for some examples.

    Can you then provide some concrete questions? Some of these words have nothing in common with all the others so I don't understand how you can confuse them with each other.
