What Makes Bad Words Bad? Taboo Language and Euphemisms
What kinds of words are off-limits in different languages? How deeply does profanity affect us? In this week’s episode, we talk about taboo language and euphemisms: how they work, when we’re allowed to use what, how psychologically deep they go, and why we can’t run on the same euphemisms forever.
There’s a lot of swearing in different languages in this one! Just so you know. Looking forward to hearing what people have to say. ^_^
