1. Forsaken, deserted. ``Your abandoned streams.'' --Thomson.

2. Self-abandoned, or given up to vice; extremely wicked, or
sinning without restraint; irreclaimably wicked; as, an
abandoned villain.

Syn: Profligate; dissolute; corrupt; vicious; depraved;
reprobate; wicked; unprincipled; graceless; vile.

Usage: Abandoned, Profligate, Reprobate. These
adjectives agree in expressing the idea of great
personal depravity. Profligate has reference to open
and shameless immoralities, either in private life or
political conduct; as, a profligate court, a
profligate ministry. Abandoned is stronger, and
has reference to the searing of conscience and
hardening of heart produced by a man's giving himself
wholly up to iniquity; as, a man of abandoned
character. Reprobate describes the condition of one
who has become insensible to reproof, and who is
morally abandoned and lost beyond hope of recovery.

God gave them over to a reprobate mind. --Rom.
i. 28.
