Swearing Is Good for You
The Amazing Science of Bad LanguageeBook - 2018
In this sparkling debut work of popular science, Emma Byrne examines the latest research to show how swearing can be good for you. She explores every angle of swearing--why we do it, how we do it, and what it tells us about ourselves. Packed with the results of unlikely and often hilarious scientific studies--from the "ice-bucket test" for coping with pain, to the connection between Tourette's and swearing, to a chimpanzee that curses at her handler in sign language--Swearing Is Good for You presents a lighthearted but convincing case for the foulmouthed.
