Hi everyone, I would like to verify the meaning of these two words because my source says that they are synonyms. I know that what is immoral or unethical can be subjective as it depends on one's personal conviction or religious affiliation. What I would like to learn is the correct usage of these terms [if I understand them correctly] as they are used by native English speakers. Based on my experience, what is usually labelled immoral are illicit sexual acts like fornication and adultery. And when one says immoral woman, one is usually talking about sexual immorality. But I also learned that immorality applies to corruption in the government, cheating in the elections, and similar acts [and not just sexual acts]. On the other hand, unethical acts are those that are usually related to good manners and right conduct. For example, it is unethical to groom in public places (combing one's hair or putting on make up) and talk when your mouth is full. Also, they say that it is unethical to ask someone how much is his salary, unless you are very close friend or relative. The same is true with asking tactless questions that can offend other people. In my examples, I wouldn't consider combing one's hair in public immoral; nor will I consider adultery and fornication unethical. Please correct me if I have misunderstood the terms and feel free to give several very good examples of unethical and immoral acts. Thank you.
