I am reading the Gesta Romanorum and I keep coming across this expression: "penitus ignoro". What does this mean?
At first I thought it meant "I ignore the penalty" or "I am unaware of the penalty". But from the context this does not always make sense. Does it simply mean, "I am unaware of something" ?? Or maybe "I am confused" ??

"[Aliquod] penitùs ignoro" = "I totally/completely/really don't know [something]" / "I'm completely unfamiliar with [something]"
"Penitùs" adverbium est
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
