a blemish made by dirt;
"he had a smudge on his cheek"
an act that brings discredit to the person who does it;
"he made a huge blot on his copybook"
smear so as to make dirty or stained
charge falsely or with malicious intent; attack the good name and reputation of someone;
"The journalists have defamed me!"
"The article in the paper sullied my reputation"
Faces..pallid and smirched with blood.出自： R. C. Hutchinson
