Subject: Re: Book on cursing?
A colleague abroad hears that a study on curse words has just
came out in the U.S. and asks for details. Does this ring a
bell with any readers? Let me know at ewb2[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]cornell.edu
The only book treating "curse words" as a broad subject that
has just come out is _Blue Streak,_ by Richard Dooling (Random
House). It's not a scholarly work, and it's not terribly good.
