SOCIOLINGUISTIC ANALYSIS OF GENDER DIFFERENCES IN USING IMPRECATIONS
Keywords:Imprecations, sociolinguistic analysis, gender use of curse words
This article demonstrates how challenging it is to study curse words because they are so contextually specific. This work advances the study of imprecations by clarifying the frequency, context, and outcomes of the usage of particular rude words by women. This research's main goal is to investigate the most common imprecations used by women. Finding out what communication gaps these imprecations create in the data collection is the secondary goal. The other goal is to determine if single-sex discussions or mixed-sex conversations are the contexts in which women most frequently use these expletives.
