Language lesson

Swear words are the most misunderstood words in our language because no authority of any kind ever authorized them as being special or deemed their use as being immoral.

Every language has its own set of words that are recognized as swear words. When you speak a language, it is understood that these reserved words are to be used only in extreme conditions to show your anger.

It is childish and irresponsible to try to make them part of your everyday language and diminish the important service that they provide our language.
