Pure-

1. without another substance: not mixed with any other substance
This jacket is pure wool.

2. free from contamination: clean and free from impurities
The water from the spring is completely pure.

3. complete: sheer or complete
a look of pure terror

4. chaste: virtuous and chaste (literary)
5. clear: pleasingly clear and vivid (refers to color, sound, or light)
6. relating to theory: relating to theory rather than practical applications
Opportunities for pure research are increasingly rare nowadays. See also applied

7. of unmixed ancestry: with unmixed parentage or ancestry
8. biology produced by constant inbreeding: produced by continual inbreeding or self-fertilization and breeding true
9. music physics composed of single frequency: consisting of a single frequency without any overtones (refers to sound)
a pure middle C

10. music without discord: free of discord and in tune (refers to a musical tone)
11. phonetics pronounced with one unchanging sound: used to describe a vowel that is pronounced with a single unchanging sound
12. phonetics pronounced without another consonant: used to describe a consonant that is pronounced unaccompanied by any other consonant


[13th century. Via French from Latin purus (source of English purée, pour, and puritanical).]

The topic of the thread says, "wat pops up in ur mind wen u hear da word "pure"?"

Not just copy and paste the different meanings of it from dictionary.com or other websites you got it from the first place.

edit: @seraph - Is it hard to come up an ideal for the word "pure" that you have to pop up a dictionary? Oh oh! I'm starting to see a pattern of your behavior.

pure makes me think of mountain springs and lust.
i know the lust thing is odd, but when i think of PURE... i add onto it Pure unadulterated lust.
maybe that's just me..
