    It means something that should not be mentioned in certain situations. A subject for example like you father having an affair and you mum don't want to talk about it or have it mentioned, therefore it is a taboo subject. something that is off limits

    That it is forbidden by custom or public opinion. Thus we say that it is taboo for a man to keep his hat on in a place of religious worship. The word has been imported from Polynesia, where certain persons or things are shunned as being accursed or sacred.
