  • She might have destroyed at a blow any influence he had ever had over Adrian, and, incalculably, she had refrained from doing it.

    —Georgette Heyer, Faro's Daughter

    A highly unusual use of this word. Normally it is an adjective modifier (e.g. incalculably high) and means "enormous, i.e. too large (or small) to be able to be calculated". But in this example Heyer has used it as a sentence adverb meaning "too puzzling to be able to calculate, i.e. understand, work out".
