About this deal

Thankfully, here’s the only piece of kit you’ll need to really develop your arsenal of fruity phrases, the guide on How To Swear Around The World. This might be okay if it were a bunch of friends sitting around comparing expressions and swear words in languages they might have learned while traveling, but zero support on pronunciation of terms and no consistency with each language offering their version of the swear word. i have realized you have to be at a certain angsty mood to be able to read this and actually learn something from it. A loosely curated collection of swear words around the world, with little to no cultural context to make it interesting, and no indication of pronunciation guide.

The amount of customs duty and VAT to be paid will be assessed at the point of entry of the destination country. It was interesting to see what groups of words are used for swearing but that's all what you can get from this book. I must say I didn't read all of it because when I saw what they did to the Czech language, I stopped thinking I could actually get anything real from this book. This essential phrasebook collects the most colourful, explicit and outrageous ways to tell people off in different languages from all around the world.

You may utter the name of the male or female organ when irritated in China or Russia; in Italy, if someone cuts you off in traffic, you may shout “ che cazzo”, which could be translated as “What the cock! We'd all love to be globetrotters, but, unfortunately, the closest most people get to seeing foreign countries is movies and photos on Facebook.

Covering all topics from the science behind the munchies (it's very real), the botanical link between beer and weed, and why smoking cannabis makes Pink Floyd sound so damned good. and beautifully-illustrated — it's the perfect gift for total pot heads or those with just a little cannabis curiosity. I tu nastaje problem jer bivše jugoslovenske republike imaju gotovo identične psovke i ako već planiraš da ih sortiraš po državama, onda bi valjalo da daš neki kontekst a ne da ih samo podeliš kako ti se ćefne. Among Christian cultures, the line between those that swear a lot about mothers and whores and those that don’t looks quite like the line between those where Mary is a co-star with Jesus and those where she’s part of the supporting cast. It had some interesting and funny phrases, but there were only swearing phrases and not one word insults, and it was FUCKING repetitive.

In southern Africa, some cultures have a ‘respect’ speech that is imposed on women in regard to their in-laws: for instance, their father-in-law’s name is taboo, as is any word that sounds like it – but that doesn’t turn the father-in-law’s name into an expletive they shout when they hurt themselves.

that's why even if a reader wanted to learn some vocabulary units, they wouldn't know how to pronounce them correctly. Featuring dozens of different languages, the sayings range from everyday swears to family curses to expressions for X-rated relations with animals.
