This is fascinating! I’ve just ordered Holy Sh*t: A Brief History of Swearing by Melissa Mohr.
For the Young Adult novel I’m writing now, I’ve been trying to figure out what obscenity Caroline Bonaparte might throw out as an emotional and angry teen. “Turd in your teeth!” might well be a contender.
Love it! I’m adding this to my list of research topics to be covered! Thanks for another great resource Sandra (I really enjoyed the Maeve Binchy clips!). -Tudor
Yes, isn’t it fun, Tudor! I’m glad you enjoyed the Maeve Binchy clips. I did too.
