Re: Swiss swear words

I am sure there is also a considerable amount of profanity in the French part of Switzerland. Since this thread is titled "Swiss swear words", why not undertake the listing of the Romandie's most popular curses, Miss Sada? "Oh la vache" is a good start, albeit a mild one.

Re: Swiss swear words

Is it really that bad? My boys always use ka ka when they need to go to the loo, they picked it up from the krippe.

Do they really say "Zut alors!" or is that just the token exclamation we were taught at school from our "Tricolore" textbook from the 80s?

Martine is annoyed and says "Zut alors!"

Caca is not bad at all. We adults use it all the time here.

I was hoping more for terms and regional variants specific to Switzerland, but thank you nevertheless, Mr CHexo. I hope Miss Sada will realise that her sudden show of prudishness and puritanism is not very convincing and that she will provide a few gros mots jurassiens.

...I can only assume you would never, ever swear yourself if you find it wrong a child swears?

Why is it ok for adults to say something and not kids? It's not the age which is inappropriate but the context. Sometimes an earthy expletive is completely appropriate. If someone's being a Doo-Doo head, they're being a Doo-Doo head. Or do we call a spade a 'you-know-what?'
ach don't start

I'm not talking about swearing in an angry or frustrated sense as we all do that. We do not correct the language if our son is upset or angry rather than focus on the reasons why he is upset.. I'm talking about a 4 year old walking down down the road happily singing la la la it's a lovely f-ing day or sitting at someone's dinner table and saying nicely that this is a load of sh!te. I think children need to use language appropriately, understand it's full meaning and so can effectively express themselves when they need to.. just like we do.

Re: Swiss swear words

This might be a true disappointment for you dear Rustyschnitzerl, but I don't find any pleasure in swearing, using all those gross words.

I tried to think of something french-swiss but nothing came to mind. The russians (d'russä - hahah) usually use genuine urban french slang.

I find that the term "Rustyschnitzerl" enjoys a prominent place in the category of "gross words".

I think when it's used in the real sense of the word then it's fine but I it can be also used as a swear word.. it's the difference between a Kinderkrippe child saying I need to ca-ca and an older child using the word inappropriately by saying *you're a ca-ca* for example.

Bimbo has a different meaning in German too. I hope my little boy will never use this word.

Please, Mr Texaner, despite the topic of this thread, there is genuine effort to maintain a reasonable level of decorum. Racial epithets such as **** and derogatory terms to describe people of small stature such as ***** and *** are uncalled for.
