    Filthy ful, despicable, disgusted

    Hi guys,

    Is it correct to say. "Eat properly so the other people do not feel filthy ful or despicabled or disgusted"?

    People can only be disgusted with the manner you eat.

    When you say "only", does that mean of the three choices?

    In which dictionary have you ever seen "filthy ful"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Filthy ful, despicable, disgusted

    On google. If it is incorrect then what is the word for a thing that can make you puke, or a very digusting thing. I think despicable means same, right?

    What is it that you want to say? You were talking about 'eating properly' and now, 'thing that makes one puke'.

    "Despicable" is a bit strong for eating habits. Something that can make you puke is "nauseating".

    People don't puke just by the sight of someone eating surely, no matter how rude or unpleasant.
