Cambridge University Press (November 20, 2006) | ISBN: 0521525640 | PDF | 314 pages | 1,9 Mb

Many words and expressions are viewed as 'taboo', such as those used to describe sex, our bodies and their functions, and those used to insult other people. This book provides a fascinating insight into taboo language and its role in everyday life. It looks at the ways we use language to be polite or impolite, politically correct or offensive, depending on whether we are 'sweet-talking', 'straight-talking' or being deliberately rude. Using a range of colourful examples, it shows how we use language playfully and figuratively in order to swear, to insult, and also to be politically correct, and what our motivations are for doing so. It goes on to examine the differences between institutionalized censorship and the ways individuals censor their own language. Lively and revealing, Forbidden Words will fascinate anyone who is interested in how and why we use and avoid taboos…

Customer Review:
This book is very easy to read and it has a very easy to understand structure. This book covers intonation patterns that are essential if you want to say what you mean, it covers word connections and this will give you that American musical way of saying things.
