Hello

can i use the expression "disturbed room" instead of saying "untidy room". and can we use disturb to mean displacing something from its place. for example is it correct to say: don't disturb my stuff=don't change the arrangement of things.

thanks

    Don't disturb my stuff is fine. As is appropriate capitalization. Thank you. :)

    I think the police would speak of a room being disturbed (during the commission of a crime) -- but even they would not call it a disturbed room.
