adjective [ uhn-pres-i-den-tid ]

unprecedented is another word for unparalleled

The adjective unparalleled describes things that stand alone in quality or degree, or, more literally, things that have no parallel. Unprecedented—a word we’ve heard a lot in 2020—describes things that have not happened before, or that have no precedent. A precedent is any act, decision, or case that serves as a guide or justification for subsequent situations. Unprecedented is often found near the words history, historic, and historically, which makes sense considering that when something unprecedented occurs, it is, by definition, a first, not yet recorded in the annals of history. Find out why this word was a top trend on and in 2020.
