    Unbreakable

    Is it possible for the adjective "unbreakable" to mean unbearable, blatant, inexcusable, unacceptable etc as in:

    "He though of the Ottoman Empire as an unbreakable tyranny"
    Thank you.

    None of unbearable, blatant, inexcusable, unacceptable is a synonym for unbreakable.

    ...and none of them is a synonym for any of the others.

    Re: Unbreakable

    The second word of your quote should be "thought", not "though".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
