The Latin word impollūtus He arrived in Spanish as unpolluted . It's about a adjective which is used figuratively to qualify that or that which has no stains .

The unpolluted, therefore, is associated with the immaculate or the pure . By example : "There is no unpolluted government: unfortunately there is always a misguided official who commits an act of corruption and betrays the trust of the people", "Please pay attention to me: I want the house to be untouched before the visits arrive", "The model, who has just turned 40, surprised with her skinless complexion".

When something looks perfect , it is said to be unpolluted. Suppose that the stadium of a certain city will be the scene of the final of an important tournament of soccer . In preparation to host this show, work is done so that the grass of the field is in the best possible conditions, the seats for the spectators are renewed and modernization works are carried out in the changing rooms. The intention is that the stadium looks clear .

A pristine car , meanwhile, has no scratch or dent. He vehicle It exhibits an impeccable appearance, without traces of use.

A unpolluted individual Finally, it is the one whose background is spotless . He never had a touch with the law , does not register debts, lacks enemies and detractors and all people who know him speak well of him. Many times, however, that perfection is hardly a facade since it is very difficult for a human being not to drag faults or defects of any kind.

While this term often appears in everyday speech, its meaning has nuances that are not always used in an informal conversation. In fact, it is normal to use it with a certain tone of exaggeration to express a deep genuine admiration for the state of a place or an object; for example by saying "Wow, the car is really clean!" We leave in evidence that it is so clean and so careful that it impresses us.

If instead of using the word unpolluted let's say that "the car is in perfect condition" it would not mean that its appearance was different, but that we would be avoiding exhibiting our feelings about it, instead opting for a opinion colder or objective.

Let's see below some of the synonyms that dictionaries offer us, to understand the nuances of this word in greater depth: pure , clean, neat, immaculate, impeccable, faultless and irreproachable. Regarding its antonyms, on the other hand, we have the following three: contaminated, stained and dirty.

It is interesting to note that the antonyms we obtain in a dictionary are not precisely those that best express the ideas opposed to the meaning of unpolluted. As it is well expressed in the previous paragraphs, an impolute thing is shown shimmering , cause admiration for his condition; An impolute person, likewise, has an impeccable reputation and can be a role model. If at one end we have an unpolluted article, the other will be its version "in deplorable state", since the adjectives dirty, stained and contaminated They do not have enough strength to denote this contrast.

In the case of a person, on the other hand, perhaps the adjective does stained to refer to your reputation if we want to express the opposite idea of ​​"an untouched trajectory". When we talk about a "stain" in this symbolic context, we usually refer to a mark that is impossible to erase, the consequence of a bad decision, such as the commission of a crime; if it were an object, the stain could simply be the result of not having cleaned it properly.
