一般來說,我們形容一朵花很香,通常用Fragrant

那形容有臭味的,英文要用哪一個單字?

Update:

stinking, reeking, foul, malodorous ... 在使用上有何區別?

    有臭味的

    It stinks.

    It smells bad / awful / terrible.

    It is smelly.

    stink 臭味的 / 很爛

    [n] Your room sticks! 你的房間好臭!

    [v] Don't stink up the place! 別弄臭這裡!

    [n / v] My math sticks. I stick at math. 我數學很爛.

    reek 臭氣 / 發臭

    [n] The reek of dirty socks fills the room. 房間裡有臭襪子的氣味

    [v] He reeks of alcohol. 他(口中)發出酒的臭味.

    foul 通常用於腐爛的臭味, 比較少用於一般的臭味 / 骯髒的

    [adj] The foul air is killing me. 骯髒的空氣讓我快死掉了.

       There is a foul smell in the air. 空氣中有臭味. (不尋常的味道)

    malodorous 是 odor香氣 [n.] 的反義形容詞, 很正式的字, 不太口語化.

    [adj] The tomb is filled with malodorous dust. 墳墓禮充滿了惡臭的灰塵.

    mal- "不" or "壞" or "惡" 的意思.  e.x. malfunction = not functioning = 故障
