  • Most language is conventional, and as such it is only important through its correlation to reality. For words, it is the people who use the language that provide the correlation to reality. In short, the majority of "us" dictates what each word means and how acceptable it is.
  • A word is a combination of letters, and a word needs to have a definition. Even "polodajfruf" could be a word, if I gave it a definition. It certainly may not be in a dictionary, but to me it's still a word. A curse word is determined how bad it is by the society, I think.. To make a curse word 'bad' I think it has to be used in a rude way. Like the word, "bitch". That's not a bad word if someone were to say "Everyone is bitching at each other". But if someone were to say "You are a bitch!", in a negative way, then it becomes a bad word.
  • Bad? i LIKE it!!! lol
  • The word is considered not for polite or younger (kids) conversation. It isn't that act is bad or dirty, it is how it is used, has been used and is portrayed. Just like it is ok to say dog poop but not dog S***. It's more what is in people's minds, and with time maybe it will come into common use and be considered the same as any descriptive word.
  • There is an urban legend that says In ancient England a person could not have sex unless you had consent of the King (unless you were in the Royal Family). When anyone wanted to have a baby, they got consent of the King, the King gave them a placard that they hung on their door while they were having sex. The placard had F.*.*.*. (Fornication Under Consent of the King) on it. many also say that this is not true..so, who knows!
  • 3-12-2017 Well, you see, every country has a committee of old men appointed by the government, and they make up all the words in the language. Nobody is allowed to say anything until they make up the new word for it.
