**Abstract**

In this paper, the concept of somewhat-connected space will be introduced and characterized. Its connection with the other well-known concepts such as the classical connectedness, the $\omega_\theta$-connectedness, and the $\omega$-connectedness will be determined. Moreover, the concept of \textit{somewhat}-continuous function from an arbitrary topological space into the product space will be characterized.
