Why do people swear? Isn't there an alternative to swearing? But wait, what makes a particular word a "swear" word? My thoughts on this is because an expression has been used too many times offensively that itself seems to be offensive. What do you think?

I'm not sure... The tone of your voice seems to put a lot into it.

I mean, when I say that's pretty 'bitchin''... I don't mean it in a bad way. I mean it's really good. So, -shrugs- I can't help yah there. =/
I usually don't curse unless I'm pissed. Or calling something a dick. Dick=Silly And my gay is spelt and said ghey. It is not the same gay.

I think people swear as an efficient way of quickly releasing frustration.

I agree with you, Alpha. But some people use those words in their normal vocabulary, it's just their way of talking.

using swear words in normal volcabulary means you know of nothing better to say.

The 'average' American uses about 800 words total.*

mehehe, I'm not average, I prolly use maybe 1100 words.**

those 400 extra words means I don't have to use an expletive to get my point across.

*based on reasearch I did quite a few years ago, or was it on a program I watched?

**I have no idea really how many words I use, But I do sometimes confuse other people with what I say because they don't know what it means, so I have to explain it to them...sometimes they still don't get it.

No offense, but if it was research you did a few years ago... I wouldn't put much validity into that.
