Wow He's actually a really good language instructor.

if you ignore all the spelling errors on the board...

Those only earn more stars.

Anaxagoras
Nah. You don't have to ignore 'em. When discussing swear words, learning the intonation, useage, and meanings when speaking the language is much more important. And he nailed that.

You can always look up spelling. But you can only get the other stuff from a good teacher. (or from living in the place)

Anaxagoras, what's the intonation for son of of bitch?

Boxhead
uhr-bahn-elph

Anaxagoras
No no... he asked for the intonation, not the pronunciation. You have 2 choices: uhr-BAHN-elph, said in a flat monotone, or urh-bahn-ELPH, with a slight rise of your voice at the end of the word.

Absolutely fascinating.

We learn swears not to use them, but just to understand them. And use them if necessary. Like a nuclear deterrent.

I once found myself accidentally doing pronunciation drills for swear words, I had this Chinese girl in my class who was really really bright but her pronunciation was awful. She'd heard someone saying "holy shit!" and she asked me what it meant, and I was explaining how it's like an expression of surprise, and she was trying to say it but she kept saying "ho-ree shiii", and before I knew it I was doing choral drills of "holy shit" with a group of upper intermediate students.

So uh, five stars.

A friend of ours did a year in France, and a while back her old roommate came to visit. I took enough French in college that I was able to chat with her, and ended up spending about 5 minutes explaining the difference between "holy shit" and "bullshit."

In one of my Chinese translating classes, we had a lively discussion of the variations and intensity of cursing a person by insulting their mother in Hebrew, English and Chinese and how curses are an excellent example of the importance of cultural context.
