спёртый - stale (air)

спёртый  [SPYOR-tyy] (adjective) – stale, stuffy

В комнате был такой спёртый воздух, что меня начало тошнить. = There was such stale air in the room that I started feeling nauseous.

 

This adjective is usually used to talk about air or a smell:

спёртый воздух = stale air

спёртый запах = stale smell

You can't use it to talk about "tangible" things. For example, stale bread = чёрствый хлеб (and NOT спёртый).
