New Studies About Cursing

Posted by on

Ted_Movie_Photo_111024x586-800x400 New study about curse words shows "most uses of swear words are not done out of anger, but to produce positive effects, mainly humor." Yes!! Plus, "swearing can lower physical pain. It has a cathartic effect that enables us to react and live through pain better." I'm telling you!! Fuck Cancer!! Another study has found that people who swear tend to have larger vocabularies: "The ability to generate taboo language is not an index of overall language poverty," wrote the researchers behind a new study published in the journal Language Sciences. "A voluminous taboo lexicon may better be considered an indicator of healthy verbal abilities.” Stated plainly, people don’t swear because they lack the words with which to express themselves. They swear because that's how they want to express themselves -- and they tend to know MORE words than people who don’t. 2016 is going to be a very good year to be Subversive.
