Hi,

Is there a word for something that everybody knows? Something like, hm, omni-known, maybe?
"Famous" or "well-known" are almost OK, except they don't give 100 percent of people involved.

Thanks,

I think "common knowledge" or "obvious" may be what you are after, I definately wouldn't use omni-known unless you want to sound a little eccentric Emotion: stick out tongue
Are you thinking of "omniscient"? Which means that someone "knows everthing".
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Thanks, I'm aware of omniscient.
We have that prefix "omni", so I thought there is a word, particularly an adjective, to describe something that is known by everybody.
No - there isn't such a word {yet}. "Common knowledge" is the best alternative.
Landmark, maybe?

AnonymousLandmark, maybe?
No.

Renown, reputation, standing, status? looking for any of them?
