I’m writing a paper (BA) on British and American swearing and I’m conducting a survey based on 25 examples of swear words and expressions from different categories. Its purpose is to check people’s awareness of certain swear words and expressions, frequency of their use, and to find out people’s perception of their offensiveness. I realise that this isn’t really about etymology, but it seems like a proper community to post such a survey. If you have two minutes to spare (quite basic questions) I would appreciate iyour participation. Please mind that this survey contains vulgarity. (duh)
Please be honest in your answers. Thank you!
