How this single word kills our language

These days you hear this word very often. Youngsters find it so “kewl” to use it in their normal conversations. It’s used as a noun, verb, adjective, adverb, and even an interjection! Guess what it is? Correct, it is the f-word.

Most people use it as an “amplifier”. For instance, if you want to say, “I was so shocked” with a lot of emphasis, you would say, “I was so f-word shocked!” Now, if your intention was to put emphasis on how shocked you were, you could use other words viz., devastated, flabbergasted, shaken, dumbfounded, etc.

By using the f-word, we are forgetting our vocabulary. We sound rude and indecent. So, let’s get rid of this offensive word, and respect the English language.
