Bergen Finally I finished this one not much to say after 6 days of no reading this book is mostly a study of how society perceives slurs and how the definition of slurs have changed over the years this is not a study on swear words per se so a little too technical for a theme that I don't believe I wanted to read but interesting study none the less

Bergen I'm giving up on this one I've been trying to finish it for months even though some small part of me always suspected this might not be as awesome as I had hoped It wasn't predetermined suspicion but I had to wonder why there should be a 288 page book covering this bit of trivia The information seemed so much less than the contentAnd that's

What the F

Free read What the F characters ì What the F ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Decided to selectively denyThat’s a damn shame Swearing is useful It can be funny cathartic or emotionally arousing As linguist and cognitive scientist Benjamin K Bergen shows us it also opens a new window onto how our brains process language and why languages vary around the world and over timeIn this groundbreaking yet ebullient romp through the linguistic muck Bergen answers intriguing uestions How can patients left otherwise speech. It took a few chapters to get into the book because the author set a less than serious tone from the offset I thought he was going to try joking his way through a book about cursing which didn t seem particularly interesting to me However when he finally got into the neuro and cognitive linguistic science of it I ended up loving it The key message of the book was that the utterances of curse words do not simply break the rules of polite society they break the rules of typical brain behavior and linguistics For example curse words like fuck and damn don t follow the rules of grammar The phrase Fuck you does not even have a subject despite appearing to have one It seems the subject is you but it is not The authors related how figuring this out was akin to learning about matter and then finding out one form of matter doesn t follow the laws of physics Despite having taken linguistic courses I hadn t really thought much about this It changed the way I saw language in general Reviewing these breaks in the rules of sentence construction were the best parts of the book It also appears that curse words at least those related to impulsive language don t follow the rules when it comes to where they should be located in the brain If a person has a stroke or surgery that affects the parts of the brain responsible for understanding or speaking language they will not be able to speak andor understand language depending on which region is affected However even for those individuals who have had entire hemispheres taken out rendering them completely incapable of speaking any intelligible language they can still spout out expletives This convincingly demonstrated that cursing or at least impulsive language is an entirely different phenomenon from normal speech The author tied all of this together with how one learns to speak the entirely different language of curse words Really eye openingThe author provided some insights about why the FCC doesn t really have a set list of what words are unacceptable He ended with a thoughtful discussion on whether cursing was morally ok I personally could have done without this section mostly because his arguments were not that great I happen to agree with his point of view but didn t love his logic He was rightfully trashing bad studies I love when authors engage in extreme critical thinking about studies with bad methods but at the same time the studies that he himself used to make his arguments didn t seem particularly solid In any event it was food for thought For example a woman was arrested for saying Fuck in front of her children Is that ok Is hearing the word fuck come out of your mother s mouth harmful than experiencing her being arrested Are mere words really that powerful Will they damage children

Free read What the F characters ì What the F ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Nearly everyone swears whether it’s over a few too many drinks in reaction to a stubbed toe or in flagrante delicto And yet we sit idly by as words are banned from television and censored in books We insist that people excise profanity from their vocabularies and we punish children for yelling the very same dirty words that we’ll mutter in relief seconds after they fall asleep Swearing it seems is an intimate part of us that we have. A really interesting exploration of profanity This is for anybody who is interested in language cultural norms and differences social psychology or cognitive and neurosciencesBenjamin K Bergen provides some remarkable evidence based arguments His examination of profanity s alleged harm to children was impressively analyzed supported and outlined The sections about American and British Sign Language and the global cultural differences with regard to offensive language and gestures were really interesting and I enjoyed all the studies regarding how our brain reacts to profanity I was actually fascinated by the extraordinary grammar of swearwords Seriously I loved that part There were a lot of huh would have never thought of that moments But I guess you might have to be a bit of a languagegrammar nerd like me to get the same reactionSome of this is very textbook style At times I felt like being back in the classroom plowing through research papers But a very well executed research paper Mr Bergen takes great care to explain concepts theories and even some of the necessary statistics relating to significance and images tables and graphs are used to clarify his points Even if you ve never bothered with this sort of stuff before his ideas and findings are easy to follow and his laid back humorous style makes this fun to read Mr Bergen had me laughing at some of his footnotes I wish research had been made into this much fun during my rather dry and sober studies I thought I was reasonably well versed when it comes to my vocabulary for a non native speaker anyway but I had to look up several of the bad words I d never come across before It s extremely unlikely I shall ever actively use them considering we re talking highly offensive language but always good to learn something new Overall very informative insightful and certainly uniue 35 stars I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
