What is the definition of distasteful?

Answer

According to Reference.com, the word "distasteful" means either unpleasant tasting or generally offensive in some way. The prefix "dis-" indicates a reversal or undoing of the root word "taste," and "full of" is the definition of the "-ful" suffix.

The word conveys an unappealing taste, whether the taste refers to eating or not. If, for instance, a particular beverage does not appeal to someone, it is distasteful to him. Additionally, if a conversation is offensive or bothersome to one of the participants, it is also distasteful to him. A chore not to one's liking is said to be distasteful as well.
