I feel a little sorry for the young adults--their uninhibited use of
formerly forbidden words must leave them at a loss when they REALLY
want to say something scathing!
I *really* hate using ellipses instead of using the actual word, but here goes:
Mr Sammler makes all kinds of observations of his strange world, but one of the funniest is when he inquires, "Who made s--- a sacrament?"
OP their uninhibited use of formerly forbidden words must leave them at a loss
This helps to explain why some young people, standing in court before a judge, where they sense that the use of such language is not appropriate, have such a difficult time expressing themselves at all.
and there are such wonderful insults and evocative superlatives available. Maybe if there was an insults course available to grade 7's we could give them more options.
Does anyone know if this is a strictly English phenomenon or are other languages having the same slide into the scatalogical and/or profane?
Well, there's always this old reliable, thou puny reeling-ripe ruinous-butt!
