There seems to be three forms of swears, those related to bodily functions, those related to religion, and those related to specific kinds of people.
Trying to find swears that don’t make me sound like Ned Flanders is difficult. I have the traditional swears of my people “Frak, Petac, Jar Jar, I bite my thumb at thee, etc” but I’d like to have something that Muggles would get but that doesn’t involve insulting a whole group of people.
Calling someone a Bastard insults everyone who’s been born out of wedlock not just the person I’m angry at. Is there a way to insult the person without insulting someone else?
If I hit my hand with a hammer and yell out the F word it I don’t actually want to fornicate with the hammer. Is there a way of expressing my pain that isn’t boring like “Ouch! that hurt me severely!”
Let me know what you think, in the comments.
