(1) The primary point of the character is to provide a source of gross-out humor, as the group reacts to his slovenly appearance and phlegmy cough.(2) You tend to get a little slovenly without the pressure of public appearance.(3) At the same time, others might tend to take you more seriously, for better or for worse - they might perceive you as just a little bit more with-it and competent than your slovenly colleagues.(4) It begins with no one troubling to polish their shoes and ends with slovenly doctors and nurses who cannot be bothered to wash their hands, killing 5,000 patients a year with MRSA.(5) On top of which the actress is awful, unwatchable, the most slovenly girl to appear on the screen in a long, long time.(6) But to be honest I felt they could have made more of an effort just with simple things like cleaning the toilets and I felt the staff had a slovenly attitude.(7) You can't let it out of control, though, otherwise you'll grow slovenly and disgusting.(8) It's interesting to watch polite, articulate, well groomed military officers field questions from slovenly reporters who look and sound like college students after an all-nighter.(9) So there's still plenty of hope that slovenly women have it together on the inside - at least as often as slovenly men.(10) I prefer it when Georges isn't cluttering up the place like a slovenly teenager.(11) It was George ‘Beau’ Brummell who restored order to the slovenly neckwear of his time, by devising the use of starch on a muslin neckcloth, so that it would retain its shape throughout the day.(12) Often slovenly and untidy, she dressed to draw attention to her figure, and the history of her love affairs and marriages provided a basis for much talk.(13) Then again, if he's objecting to your haphazard grammar and slovenly spelling, he has a point.(14) On the other end of the phone, half the country away, is Vinnie, an unkempt, badly shaven, slovenly dressed loser.(15) Yet despite his slovenly appearance, somehow Araki is always followed by lovely young ladies in kimonos and gangs of sharp-dressed yes men.(16) As Sylvie's grandmother would say (as she did, indeed, frequently say), Sylvie is slovenly , slatternly.
