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.
Oh dear Lord, what have I started..

(btw i perfer swissotter's - it's the musical tones, doesn't seem as rude somehow.. Texaner, that's shocking!!)

My double-click translator gives 'lulatsch' as beanpole. Nice one.

Thanks for a great ^_^&%$#()()#* thread, people.

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?

Re: Swiss swear words

jaysus CHexo, you've done both lists, in Swiss German & French !!!
Must have been a super-mega-geile moment pour toi and so therapeutic. How about in Italian? and then someone should list the Rumantsch swear words too.

Re: Swiss swear words

what you don't know won't hurt you,....
why would you want to be bothered with (of all things) swear words?
sigh....
what comes around goes around, spread some good words instead...

you don't need to be too bothered really...
that's just my opinion.....

have a lovely evening folks!

Yes and I came more than once while writing the lists.

Just sharing my precious knowledge (looks like it was of some interest after all)

I am done writing lists now.

Re: Swiss swear words

The rather limited descriptive and emotional swear words in foreign languages again lends strength to those of us that feel that the English language is indeed the most effective, precise and readily learnt tongue which should be mastered to be fully appreciated.

Whilst many nations swear using words based on bodily fluids and actions, direct sexual references or marital status of ones' parents, English users can proud of their acumen when dealing with irony, sarcasm, double entendres and suggestion alone, without necessarily needing to resort to blatant swearing. On the other hand, the English language could also be accused of offering sanctuary to a host of perverted practices by having words that describe in finite detail, actions which really do need their own words. (Yes, there are examples...)

Now, if you if you don't like what I've written, may I suggest that you please make a rapid exit from whence you came....

Ah yes, a lesson worth sharing...

If you're sitting in a busy restaurant, and your friend/partner/spouse/SO touches your foot
with hers, do not ask anything along the lines of "Are you playing footsie?".

The restaurant will go very quiet, and your shin will suddenly hurt a lot.

Please watch those language anomalies when posting your replies to this thread. Any innuendos or dual-meaning phrases may well be pounced upon and used against you in a sniggering, schoolboy kind of way. Readers of UK adult comic Viz which features Finbarr Saunders and his double entendres know what to expect.

Now back to the swear words folks; culture for the proletariat....
