Explain the meaning of certain
According to Google the meaning of certain is,"specific but not explicitly named or stated." This definition is confusing to me. Can anyone plz help me with it.
"Certain" usually means definite or sure. I'm certain that Tom is 25 years old.
It has other meanings. Your definition is another meaning. In this sense of the word, it means that we know that some particular person, thing, event, etc. is involved, but we can't identify it.
Mary told me that a certain law prohibits golf carts from being driven on the street, but I don't know which law it is.
