The word putrid originated in Latin. It is taken from the word putridus. Later, it was modified by Middle English as putred. Putrid is used to describe something that is decomposed or smells bad. Putrid is an adjective. For example: the putrid odour of the garbage filled the room. Anything which relates to the act of decomposition or putrefaction is also termed putrid.

Putrid also implies morally rotten or corrupt. For example: his mind was crammed with all putrid thoughts. This explains that the person was devising a foul plan or some immoral act. Something which is vile is addressed as putrid.
