Clueless

 

I'm clueless. He's clueless. She's clueless. Um…I mean, it's literally a clue less, that is, a clue in the sense of a piece of information or evidence used by police in solving a crime, that's where the word started years ago. And then it became a rather more general meaning any facts about solving a problem - in phrases like, you know, “clues about the past”, “have we got any clues about the past?” - in archaeology exploration, for example. And then earlier, there was a usage in idiom, you know, “I haven't got a clue” - I've got no idea, I can't think what's happening. So it has this kind of informal sense, the word “clue” goes back quite a long time, meaning having no knowledge or understanding or ability.

It's a much milder word, clueless, than stupid. Um…Stupid is quite strong, isn’t it? “You're stupid” is stronger than “you're clueless!” Clueless is more - you're absent minded, you're scatty, you could probably do it if you kept your mind on it - it's that kind of usage, isn't it? A much milder concept.

Usage spread when it became the name of a 1995 film, loosely based on Jane Austen's “Emma” - it was called “Clueless”. It's often intensified too – “I'm totally clueless!” I heard somebody say the other day “I'm totally clueless when it comes to grammar”. Well, I'm not totally clueless when it comes to grammar, but I have to say, I am totally clueless when it comes to cooking. I can do toast, and that's about it!

Clueless

  I am clueless. He is clueless. She is clueless. Um, it's actually a "clue-less". That is the clue in the sense of a piece infomation or evidence used by police solving a crime that was the starting years ago.

  And then it become a rather more general meaning, any facts about solving a problem. In chance like you know, clues about the parts. Have you got any clues about the parts in arthaeology exploration for example.

  And early there is a use in media. You know "I haven't got a clue." I have no ideas. I can't think what's happening. So it has it came to be informal sense word "clueless" goes by quite a long time meaing having no knowledge or understanding or ability. Much minder the word "clueless" than "stupid". "stupid" is quite strong, isn't it. "You are stupid." is stronger than "You are clueless." Clueless is more your absent-minded, your scatty. You could proplerly do it if you catch your mind on it. It is that kind of use. Suggest it much minder concept.

   Usage spread when it become the name of a 1995 film, loosely based on Jame Austen's 《Emma》, which called 《clueless》.Jobs intensified to "I am totally clueless." I heard somebody say the other day "I am totally clueless when it comes to grammer." But I not totally clueless when it comes to grammer. I have to say I am totally clueless when it comes to cooking. I do toast nuts about it.
