The mentally challenged child was dumbfounded in early childhood.
Even a normally talkative person can be dumbfounded by a highly negative response to his assertions.
Yes, dumbfounded is a compound word. They can be two separate words, so it is a compound word. Dumb + Founded = Dumbfounded. I hope that answers your question. Cha Cha!
Yes it is. From the outdated meaning of dumb (speechless), dumbfounded means rendered unable to act or speak, as when startled or awed.
When our boss announced her resignation, the entire staff was completely dumbfounded. We knew he had no clue about the surprise party because he looked completely dumbfounded.… When it was discovered that she embezzled millions from the company, her supervisor was totally dumbfounded.
I would never use the word. I would change it to "dumbfounded", as in "She was dumbfounded by the boys' strange behavior." Dumbfounded just means astonished or amazed. Being d…umb means not being able to speak, the dumb can't talk, therefore being dumbfounded is just being struck speechless by something.
