A thoughtful reader sent us a cloud of the most popular Lithuanian swear words and phrases and their English translations.
Hmmmmm. A very useful tip for those who wanted to teach their non-lithuanian friends to swear in Lithuanian.
But what other, if any, conclusions would you draw from this information?
Lithuanian swear words are rather mild compared to other languages. Maybe that is the reason why Lithuanians still keep using the dirty/vulgar swear words borrowed from the Slavic languages.
By the way, did you know that statistically about 0.7% of all the words spoken by all of us throughout the day are swear words? Or did you know that kids often learn a "bad" word before they learn the alphabet?
