Welcome to another #WordOfTheDay series. The essence of bringing these words is to help improve your vocabulary as a writer. Words are very important for writers and the more words you know, the better your writing will be.

Today’s word is ‘unalloyed’.

When something is unalloyed it means it is in a pure state, containing no impurities. Unalloyed can also mean absolute or that no other feeling would diminish it.

Other words that can be used in its place include sheer, pure, absolute, complete, total, undiluted.

For example
A president should have unalloyed loyalty to his country.
The wedding of her only child was an occasion of unalloyed joy.

We hope you use this word soon.
