Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“Swearing constitutes a species of human behavior so little understood, even by its most devoted practitioners, that an examination of its meaning and significance is now long overdue. The temper of the times in which we live having grown somewhat more complaisant, a consideration of this once tabooed topic may not be considered out of joint. Searing, because it is so little understood, is still an equivocal form of conduct without social sanction. Hence, it has long pursued a fugitive existence in all such dark places as are not open to the light of social intercourse. That is to say, among many people swearing is socially not tolerated in any form. Nonetheless, such people may in private give expression to their feelings in words somewhat stronger than they would ordinarily use – for there are such phenomena as solitary swearers.”

–From Ashley Montagu’s “The Anatomy of Swearing” (1967).
