    I don't claim to have known its meaning.

    When I search the meaning of a word on Google I don't claim to have known its meaning.

    Please check.

    I have corrected the first half of your sentence but the underlined part doesn't make any sense. What are you trying to say?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Undelined part means "I don't claim that I already knew its meaning before searching for its meaning on Google."

    Re: I don't claim to have known its meaning.

    Why on earth would you want to say that? The natural assumption is that you don't know the meaning of a word if you are trying to find its meaning.

    Your sentence is meaningless, tufguy.
