<strong>Examples:</strong><br />
<p>"When she began living next to the beach in Barcelona, New Yorker Elizabeth Sherr was distressed to see all the cigarette butts and litter <em>sullying</em> its golden sand. The 24-year-old began a campaign to pick up the rubbish piece by piece, posting videos on TikTok encouraging others to get involved." — Graham Keeley, <em>i</em> (, 10 June 2021

<strong>Did you know?</strong><br />
<p>The spelling of <em>sully</em> has shifted several times since it was <em>sylian</em> in Old English, but its meaning has remained essentially the same: "to soil." In case you are wondering whether <em><a href="">sullen</a></em> (meaning "gloomy or morose") is a relative, the answer is "no." <em>Sullen</em> comes from Latin <em>solus</em>, meaning "alone."
