words that begin with ex- exonerate

Another EX- word today! Let's take a look at this amazing word:


First, according to CardamomTea's suggestion let's listen to the word's  pronunciation here. Now, let us study the word itself... EXONERATE has quite a few meanings... The Polish meanings are zwolnić, usprawiedliwić, uniewinnić, oczyścić, uwolnić (z zarzutów, z winy)... So as you see the word can me quite useful especially when you need to ask someone for exoneration :) In English I could say it refers to an action of showing that someone (also something) is not to be blamed; that someone or something is not guilty of something. In other words: to clear of blame, to declare innocent or to relieve from a duty or an obligation (often used in a legal or moral sense)...

What do I have to say in this context?
Well... I guess everybody should agree with me that the feeling of being blamed for something and having qualms of conscience is not necessarily pleasant. You feel guilty, which leads to either feeling down in the mouth (or down in the dumps) or, if you don't do something about it, just depressed... Now, what can you do to raise your spirits? The solutions is both simple and difficult. it's difficult because you need to develop a feeling of repentance in your heart... and it's simple because you just need to go to church to ask God for forgiveness... The moment a person turns from sin to Jesus Christ in faith, his sin is forgiven. Isn't it a perfect example of exoneration?

Let's take a look at a few examples from the Net:
  • Singer went on to say that when all the facts are in, his client will be exonerated from charges...
  • Some people were exonerated posthumously.
  • The company will be exonerated from any liability in case of delay resulting from customs procedures or any other cause beyond the control of...
  • ...the 12th century archers were exonerated from a charge of murder or manslaughter...
  • As regards goods, exports to countries outside the EU are exonerated from VAT.
  • Whilst both were exonerated from police charges...
  • Parents are exonerated from blame...
  • Unless of course you were over age 55 when you sold the final home, in which case you were exonerated from at least some of the tax bite.
My question to you:
What have you ever exonerated anybody from something? or Have you ever been exonerated from something? What was the feeling like? :)

Looking forward to your valuable posts impatiently!


  1. I need to say that the judgement of some of our teachers is hurry - scurry. I mean that there were many situations in what i was exonerated from something. Last time it was on 29th June on the ending of our school year. I was told to play on my acoustic guitar with a friend of mine - Bartek. During the performance there was a big "WEEEEEEEEEE" - that was caused because of being the microphone to near to the speakers. It was Bartek's fault because he was holding it. My music teacher and started talking to me in an angry tone, I tried to say her that it wastn't my fault. Fortunately Bartek interrupted her and said that it was because of him. She apologised us ang went away.
    The most popular place where you can get exonerated is confessional. When you go there you can get a penance and forgiveness.
    By the way... I have a question. In this topic there is a picture of a girl with a sentence: "Not Guilty". Please, tell me if it is a book or only a picture. Thanks in advance :)

    1. Hi Crown. Thank you for your post. It's true that many teacher assess their poor students hastily and, what's even worse, if the first encounter with your teacher is negative, you are likely to be remembered as "that problematic kid", which is not nice... It is also very hard to be exonerated from what you didn't do... Anyhow, I agree with you that a confessional is the place where all your faults can be exonerated :) As for the picture, it's just a picture although I can't exclude any film with such a cover... Cheers!

    2. Thanks for the reply. There istn't such a film with such a picture, but there is one with the same title ;)

    3. Oh... I didn't know... Thanks for this... I am a complete ignorant when it comes to movies :)
