Don't know

Dunno means "don't know." People typically use this casual, clipped slang term among family and friends, when they do not know what they are going to do.

For example, people may respond with "I dunno" or just "dunno" when asked:

  • "What do you want for dinner?"
  • "Where are you planning to go to college?"
  • "What do you want to do today?"
  • "What is the square root of 60,025?
  • "What is the meaning of life?"

In online chat and text messages, people may also use DK or dno to mean "don't know" and IDK to mean "I don't know."
