Ken — no Barbie

Ken (other than a proper name) is not a word that us used much.  There is a word “ken” that means range of vision or sight.  It also means understanding or cognizance.  It can also mean to know of or be acquainted with a person or thing.

An example would be that astrophysics (among other things) is beyond my ken.

In the British dialect it can mean to declare, acknowledge or confess something.
