Let’s Talk Fish?
“Profanity, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is “an offensive word” or “offensive language”. It is also called bad language, strong language, coarse language, foul language, bad words, vulgar language, lewd language, swearing, cursing, cussing, or using expletives. This use is a subset of a language’s lexicon that is generally considered to be strongly impolite, rude or offensive. It can show a debasement of someone or something, or show intense emotion. Profanity in this sense takes the form of words or verbal expressions that fall into the category of formulaic language.
In its older, more literal sense, the term “profanity” refers to “offensive words, or religious words”, used in a way that shows the user does not respect “God or holy things”, or behaviour showing similar disrespect.
“Jae? Are you insane?” No. Well, I don’t think so, but depending on your personal opinion of me…
So let’s have some fun. Let’s have fun words to make us think about what comes out of our mouth, diffuse hostility and create a smile on a strangers’ face.
Soon, we will be looking at the following topics and hopefully there will be more to come.
