Definition: without fault and not subject to blame

Synonyms: faultless, exemplary, impeccable, blameless, innocent

Antonyms: flawed, imperfect, blamed

Tips: The root word of irreprachable is reproach, which means "criticize." Adding the prefix ir- gives it the opposite meaning. Therefore, irreproachable describes people and situations that are without fault and cannot be criticized. You may hear someone say something like, "he thinks he is beyond reproach." Meaning: he thinks he is above criticism, or he thinks he is irreproachable.

Usage Examples:

The boy's behavior was irreproachable throughout dinner, so he was allowed to stay up past his bed time. (impeccable, examplary)

He was given an award for his irreproachable sense of honor and duty. (exemplary)

Her mistake was irreproachable and I certainly wouldn't blame her for it. (innocent, blameless)
