The F-Word

Monty Python hatten neben der ganzen Blödelei auch noch Zeit für tiefgründige linguistische Analysen (ok, die Etymologie des Wortes aus dem Deutschen ist natürlich völliger Blödsinn).

History of the word fuck

Perhaps one of the most interesting words in the English language today, is the word fuck. Of all the English words beginning with f, fuck is the single one referred to as the “f-word”. It’s the one magical word. Just by it’s sound it can describe pain, pleasure, hate and love. Fuck, as most of the other words in English, has arrived from Germany. Fuck from German’s “fliechen” which mean to strike.
In English, fuck folds into many grammatical categories.

- As a transitive verb: “John fucked Shirley”.
- As an intransitive verb: “Shirley fucks”.
- As an adjective such as: “John’s doing all the fucking work”.
- As part of an adverb: “Shirley talks too fucking much”.
- As an adverb enhancing an adjective: “Shirley is fucking beautiful”.
- As a noun: “I don’t give a fuck”.
- As part of a word: “abso-fucking-lutely” or “in-fucking-credible”.
- Or as almost every word in a sentence: “Fuck the fucking fuckers!”.

As you must realize, there aren’t many words with the versatility such as the word fuck, as in these examples used as the following words:

- Fraud: “I got fucked”
- Trouble: “I guess I’m really fucked now”
- Dismay: “Oh, fuck it!”
- Aggresion: “Don’t fuck with me, buddy!”
- Difficulty: “I don’t understand this fucking question”
- Inquery: “Who the fuck was that?”
- Dissatisfaction: “I don’t like what the fuck is going on here”
- Incompetence: “He’s a fuck-off!”
- Dismissal: “Why don’t you go outside and fuck yourself?”

I’m sure you can think of many more examples. With all these multipurpoused applications, how can anyone be offended when you use the word? Use this unique, flexibel word more often in your daily speech. It will identify the quality of your character immediately. Say it loudly and proudly: FUCK YOU!
