An introduction to linguistic study through the lens of taboo language, a pervasive part of all languages. Surveys topics in modern linguistics by studying taboos in various languages. Students sensitive to obscene words are discouraged from enrolling, as are students with only a prurient, non-scholarly interest in taboo language.
