There is a brief sentence with a word which threw me into a slight confusion, namely the adjective “fortuitous”.
I know the meaning of the word in question, namely “fortuitous” (adj.) = “happening by accident or chance, occurring by happy chance” = “accidentally” = “occurring unexpectedly, unintentionally, or by chance”
In its best-established sense, fortuitous means “happening by accident or chance,” In my opinion, a fortuitous meeting may have either fortunate or unfortunate consequences. But however , for decades, the word has often been used in reference to happy accidents, as in The company's profits were enhanced as the result of a fortuitous drop in the cost of paper.
Would you be kind enough to tell me your opinion concerning the matter in hand?
Thank you for your efforts.
Your assessment seems about right and totally unconfused.
