Expletive meanings

okay,

I will admit, at times I have the mouth of a truck driver. I use words like F*ck and Sh!t and God Damnit and all the others. But I was just thinking. When you say God Damn it, if you break it down to what it means, do I have some power over god to damn the object or event to which I am upset at? when my bike doesn't start and I yell God Damn it, is going to banish my motorcycle to the fires of hell?

how about F*ck you. this is one that doesn't make sense, and I admit that I use this from time to time. When you are upset at somebody, you yell F*ck you. but think about it, I don't really want to F*ck that person. (and yes I am sure)

please feel free to discuss, I am probably way off base, and will have three people post the corrected meanings of words etc. But I was thinking about this and am somebody told me I need to start more threads

F*CK - For Underage Carnal Knowledge (other meanings as well)

Sh*t - Store High In Transport (long story I can go into if you care, has to do with methane build ups in trans-oceanic shipping)

GDI - yep, you are asking God to curse something. However, it is actually the use that is the issue. GDI is using the Lord's name in vain, and has the potential to offend others more than the other more colorful words.

JMHO,

Wink

see, I was kidding, and had heard about SH*t before, didn't know if that story was true, but know exactly what you are talking about. But f*ck I am interested in knowing where the context came from.

Also, as a non-religous person, why do people take the word god as the lord's name in vein? is it because the word God is a general name, and that prior to the christian religions the most popular religions believed in poly theism (sp?) or the belief in multiple gods? and that to put the all mighty lord in the same context with the greek 'gods' is to disgrace the lord? FYI, I really am asking, because I am curious to know...

Also, if I have offended anyone, please I mean NO disrespect.

Shit
Shit is a very old word, with an Old English root. *Scítan is the Old English word. It has cognates in most of the other Germanic languages and shares a common Germanic root with modern equivalents like the German scheissen.

*Scítan, however, doesn't appear in extant Old English texts and is only assumed to have existed in Old English. The verb to shit dates the Middle English period (c. 1308), and the noun form is from the 16th century. The interjection is of quite recent vintage, not found until the 1920s.

In 2002, an alleged acronymic origin for shit appeared on the Internet. According to this tale, the word is from an acronym for Ship High In Transit, referring to barges carrying manure. This is a complete fabrication and absurd on its face. All it takes to disprove it is to look up the word in any decent dictionary. Remember, anytime someone posits an acronymic word origin, chances are that it is utterly false.
--------------

Fuck
Popular etymologies agree, unfortunately incorrectly, that this is an acronym meaning either Fornication Under Consent of the King or For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, the latter usually accompanying a story about how medieval prisoners were forced to wear this word on their clothing.

Deriving the etymology of this word is difficult, as it has been under a taboo for most of its existence and citations are rare. The earliest known use, according to American Heritage and Lighter, predates 1500 and is from a poem written in a mix of Latin and English and entitled Flen flyys. The relevant line reads:

Non sunt in celi quia fuccant uuiuys of heli.
Translated:

They [the monks] are not in heaven because they fuck the wives of Ely [a town near Cambridge].

------------

Windy City
Popular myth has it that this nickname for the Chicago was coined by Charles Dana, the editor of the New York Sun, in 1893. Chicago was competing with New York to host the 1893 Columbian Exposition and Dana allegedly coined the name as a derogatory moniker. Supposedly the term is not a reference to the winds off Lake Michigan as one might suppose, but rather refers to the Chicagoan habit of rabid boosterism and shameless boasting. To a New Yorker like Dana, Chicago was full of hot air.

The story simply isn't true. The name dates to at least 1885, and clearly refers to the breezes off the lake. 1885 references include "city of winds" as well as "Windy City." This isn't new information either. Mathew's Dictionary of Americanisms, published some 50 years ago, includes an 1887 quotation of "Windy City, but the myth persists--largely due to newspaper reporters and editors who repeat the tale without checking the facts.


Does this help ya Chris??

I can handle just about anything anyone says. The only thing I think is tasteless is taking God's name in vain.

A lot of swear words don't have dictionary references so they can be used however the fuck you want.
