    Unuseful/useless

    Unuseful/useless
    Is there any difference in meaning?
    You're so unuseful!
    You're so useless!
    Does one of the two sentences above have a more pejorative meaning than the other?

    Thank you in advance

    I think it's not a good idea to compare these words. Let's compare "useful and useless". You would say they are opposites. Indeed they are. As to "unuseful and useless", I would say not useful instead of unuseful.Well, they are synonyms.

    Actually I heard this word sometimes but I can't find it on my dictionary. It probably doesn't even exist!!
    Thank you....
