What the F?

A warning: We say several profane words. Including tabernacle!

Jon and Juliet talk about Benjamin K. Bergen’s book What the F? What Swearing Reveals about Our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves.
In our Profanity or Amateurfanity? show we talked about some concepts from Mr. Bergen’s book. We expand upon that here.

And we highly recommend the book. Follow this link to Amazon.
