For many people, swearing is a lazy way of describing things.
While the words can punctuate certain feelings when you are speaking, swearing has been thought of as words for the uneducated. But according to a new study by Language Sciences Journal, people who swear a lot tend to have a wider vocabulary than those who do not. This makes sense if you consider all the writers and intellectuals from history who were known to curse a blue streak. Author Mark Twain may have put it best: “under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.”
Do you think swearing is a sign of intelligence or laziness?
