Why do people swear?


Maybe this is a weird question, but it is one I have wondered about quite a bit lately.

    That is true of some, and seemed to be the case in the movie I referenced above, but is not always true. I can just as well use a $5 word to insult someone--it's often in the IQ of the person being addressed that matters--the only language they get

    Yep--that worked for a friend of mine, who never swore--so when she told her kids, "Clean this effing mess, NOW!" they knew there was no more arguing the point & they better get to it!

    "Black" is the only color that I see for all of the words in swearing "foul, dirty" language.

    If I hit my finger with a hammer I say, "Owwww! Dammn it!"

    If I keep dropping something, I tell myself it is not an accident and ask myself, "Why am I doing it?"

    All these actions are due to excessive emotions which are out of order and out of control.

    Yes, swearing comes out , sometimes out of your emotions. Swearing in the name of god, is also a big no for me.

    Well DDE, how can swearing takes away the anger. I think swear to make others believe easily, even if it is wrong. It is also an attempt to end an argument.

    Exactly. my son tells me i have the filthiest mouth of anyone he has ever met. Sadly, i have to agree with him in that respect. But it sure makes me feel better after cussing.

    I totally agree with you. I forget if I was brought up not to use it or if I just chose this on my own. I dislike when I am laughing at a comedy and suddenly it uses those words. (I cannot even write them in symbols)

    I agree with the part about the vocabulary and I am not a teacher.
