Ack! Its been a long time since I posted! But I have the perfect topic for it:
Unique swear words, insults, and exclamations!
By the egg!
A good way to add detail to a world is to give it its own swears, insults and exclamations! Good terms include slang and silly words, as well as religious, historical, and cultural references.
Some examples include:
[person of significance]'s [something belonging to person, usually of note]
[any silly sounding word]
[a curse word in another language]
[something considered disgusting or uncouth]
[something of some importance, religious, cultural, etc.]
The sky is the limit.
Of course, the best purpose of making up swear words is to be have your characters swear without offending anyone, a good trick for a writer.
What do you think of this idea? Post a comment!
