    Yes and no. It's used in a negative way to insinuate that the person is dumb, however it doesn't necessarily mean dumb.

  • Some uneducated inventors were not handicapped by what educated people believed would not work.

    A dumb person would know dictionaries exist but wouldn't think to use one.

    An uneducated person might not know dictionaries exist, but if they did know, they would work out quickly how to use one.

    By no means. There are some very bright individuals who just have not had a chance for advanced education.

    No! Uneducated means that you have not been taught in specific areas or no areas at all. However, if given the opportunity or tools to learn the material you could.

    Un-Intelligent means that you are incapable of learning the matter at hand.

    Let's first examine the word "uneducated" mayhap a relation to dumb. Okay do you mean person was not educated at your school or person was brainwashed.

    It might be used as a synonym.

    No, it is often said of people who had very little opportunity of going to school. What they may be missing are skills, rather than the ability to reason and draw conclusions.
