I can't think of a sentence that has the word 'scruple' (as in "Dear me," said the general, quite unruffled, "again that unpleasant word. But I think I can show you that your scruples are quite ill founded.")


  • English -

    Your scruples are your moral standards. Someone who is referred to as unscrupulous is someone who has no moral standards and behaves badly, illegally, etc.

    Try writing a sentence of your own, and we'll let you know how you did.

    Here's the definition from the American Heritage Dictionary:

    "An uneasy feeling arising from conscience or principle that tends to hinder action. See Synonyms at qualm."

    My SCRUPLES prevented me from cheating on the test.
