Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,3, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine", language: English, abstract: This paper aims to examine today's representation of common curse words in a linguistic approach. I will have a look at five frequently used swearwords in the English language and evaluate those due to social features of the speaker and the addressee by using data from the BNCweb corpus. In addition to that I will either prove or disprove some of the following assumptions made by Timothy Jay and Kristin Janschewitz for the circuit of the BNCweb corpus: “Swearing is influenced by pragmatic (contextual) variables such as the conversational topic, the speaker-listener relationship, including gender, occupation, and status, and the social-physical setting of the communication with respect to whether the swearing takes place in a public or private location, one’s jurisdiction over the location, and the level of formality of the occasion.” To narrow this down, I categorize my research in four classes: context, status, gender and additionally age. Finally, I conclude whether the above-mentioned social features influence a native English speaker's disposition to swear.

Grasping how to swear is a crucial skill to any English-speaker, but it can be a tricky business. Owing to the rich and complex history of swearing, a single word can have a host of different meanings – from expressing surprise, excitement, anger, celebration, disgust or simply that you’re fucked off. If you don’t get it right, you could really be in the shit. How to Swear, by graphic artist and swearing-connoisseur Stephen Wildish, uses all manner of charts and flow diagrams to teach you all you need to know, including: the building blocks of an effective insult; the adverbial uses of various types of animal excrement (horseshit, apeshit etc); and the different parts of speech a swear word can fulfil: ‘Fucking fuck, the fucking fucker’s fucked’. This charming (and rude) book will take you right to the heart of the wondrous world of swearing, with a lot of laughs on the way.

Do men use bad language more than women? How do social class and the use of bad language interact? Do young speakers use bad language more frequently than older speakers? Using the spoken section of the British National Corpus, Swearing in English explores questions such as these and considers at length the historical origins of modern attitudes to bad language. Drawing on a variety of methodologies including historical research and corpus linguistics, and a range of data such as corpora, dramatic texts, early modern newsbooks and television, Tony McEnery takes a socio-historical approach to discourses about bad language in English. Arguing that purity of speech and power have come to be connected via a series of moral panics about bad language, the book contends that these moral panics, over time, have generated the differences observable in bad language usage in present day English. A fascinating, comprehensive insight into an increasingly popular area, this book provides an explanation, and not simply a description, of how modern attitudes to bad language have come about.

An authoritative look at how language is used to convey emotions from slight surprise to all-out wrath, it draws upon the inspiration of history's greatest cursers, revelling in the vulgarity and coarseness of our cultural icons. Eyebrow-raising to the extreme, one read of The Joy of Swearing guarantees that those turd-stepping, toe-stubbing times of madness will never be quite the same again

Welcome to my book of 101 Ways to Swear in English. An analytically and sometimes meta-analytically study of how we the English swear. Where those words originated from and why. Their origins and rise to fame and how we use them now, sometimes years later. It occurred to me one day, that I spend my working week here in Sao Paulo, Brazil teaching students how to speak English in our school from books that are written and produced in the United Kingdom and teaching those students how to speak with our so called pure and sexy British accent. Of course, I am English and so firmly believe that "English English" is far superior to any other English spoken around the world. After all it's the mother tongue right? This book is humorous whilst been completely honest. If you are offended by bad language then switch over now. Bad language is part of our lives. This book is an attempt to teach strangers to our shores how to use the colored words in our language. As well as a satirical look at ourselves.

This is the only encyclopedia and social history of swearing and foul language in the English-speaking world. It covers the various social dynamics that generate swearing, foul language, and insults in the entire range of the English language. While the emphasis is on American and British English, the different major global varieties, such as Australian, Canadian, South African, and Caribbean English are also covered. A-Z entries cover the full range of swearing and foul language in English, including fascinating details on the history and origins of each term and the social context in which it found expression. Categories include blasphemy, obscenity, profanity, the categorization of women and races, and modal varieties, such as the ritual insults of Renaissance flyting and modern sounding or playing the dozens. Entries cover the historical dimension of the language, from Anglo-Saxon heroic oaths and the surprising power of medieval profanity, to the strict censorship of the Renaissance and the vibrant, modern language of the streets. Social factors, such as stereotyping, xenophobia, and the dynamics of ethnic slurs, as well as age and gender differences in swearing are also addressed, along with the major taboo words and the complex and changing nature of religious, sexual, and racial taboos.

Filthy EnglishFilthy English



This is the story of that cultural revolution, written by one who was there at the start, proudly striking some of the first blows in the long struggle for the right to reclaim filthy English and use it.

When the Sex Pistols swore live on tea-time telly in 1976, there was outrage across Britain. Headlines screamed. Christians marched. TVs were kicked in. Thirty years on, all those words are media-mainstream - bandied about with impunity on TV and in the papers. This is the story of our bad language and its three-decade journey from the fringes of decency to the working centre of a more linguistically liberal nation. Silverton takes a clear, comprehensive and witty look at swearing and the impact of its new acceptability on our language, our manners and our society. He considers how we have become more openly emotional, yet more wary about insulting others. And how it's seemingly become alright to say **** and **** but not ****** or ****. This is the story of that cultural revolution, written by one who was there at the start, proudly striking some of the first blows in the long struggle for the right to reclaim filthy English and use it.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Hildesheim (Institut für englische Sprache und Literatur), course: Accents and Dialects in Great Britain, language: English, abstract: Diese Arbeit untersucht den Zusammenhang zwischen Schimpfwörter und Dialekten am Beispiel englischer Dialekte Großbritanniens. Es wird die These aufgestellt, Dialekte böten einen nahrhaften Boden für eine Vielfalt an Schimpfwörtern, die so in der Standardsprache nicht vorzufinden sei. Als Beleg dieser These wird zunächst näher auf die Natur des Fluchens und somit dem Enstehen von Schimpfwörtern eingegangen. Im Folgenden wird mit Hilfe einer Korpusanalyse das Vorkommen der häufigsten englischen Schimpfworte im gesprochenen wie schriftlichen Diskurs verglichen. Die Ergebnisse zeigen einen deutlichen Trend zum Fluchen im mündlichen Diskurs. Da die gesprochenen Sprache für die Mehrheit aller Sprecher vielmehr ein Dialekt als die Standardsprache ist, deutet dieser Befund auf eine größere Bandbreite an Dialektschimpwörtern im Kontrast zur Standardsprache hin. Dies wird anhand konkreter Beispiele dialektaler Schimpfwörter aus diversen englischen Dialektvarianten illustriert.

FINALLY-THE CURE FOR THE COMMON CURSE! Faced with an epidemic of profanity, our country is in need of practical suggestions for breaking a habit that has ordinary citizens contributing to the decline of civility and good manners. It's not always easy to resist the urge to cuss, but foul language creates an unfavorable image, is damaging to relationships, and goes hand-in-hand with a negative attitude. Now, James V. O'Connor-founder of the Cuss Control Academy-offers the first book to explain why we swear and how we can learn to hold our tongues. Cuss Control doesn't call for the total elimination of swearing, just for its confinement to situations where extreme emotion (think hammer, think thumb) demand it. His program for easing us off the gutter-talk highway involves alternative "potent phrases" for classic curses, including the F-word; ways to communicate clearly rather than use lazy language; and tips on adjusting our attitude and abolishing obscenities. Packed with practical exercises and tips, as well as thoughtful reflection on how we've worked ourselves up into such a state of affairs, Cuss Control is a refreshing celebration of the joys of a civil tongue. "O'Connor is not ready to rid the world of dirty words. He just thinks less cursing is the key to a less stressful world, and maintains that even natural-born cursers can learn to control their anger along with their language." -Knight-Ridder Newspapers
