Abstract [en]

A study is made of the vocabulary in Modern English related to swearing.Based on this study of lexical material, a folk taxonomy and folk theory ofswearing is constructed for Angla-American culture. This folk taxonomyis compared with the more scholarly classification scheme of AshleyMontague. The study ends with a presentation of a new proposal for ataxonomy of swearing that will be used as a basis for a cross-culturalcomparative, study of swearing.
