Background / Comments
I’ve run across this word in reading, and I had a sense of the meaning from the context. However, I was pronouncing it like it was “unwanted”. Our word comes from un- (negation) and the Middle English word woned, wont (accustomed), which is the past principle of wonen (to be used to, to well).
