Hi friends I'm Niharika and welcome back. Are you scared of using swear words? And as

I said am I teaching you to use swear words? No I'm not. Well what are swear words? Swear

words are these offensive or bad words that are used in English especially to express

anger or frustration. So many people have this general tendency that when they are angry

or when they are mad at someone, they end up using these bad words like oh F*** or Oh

shit! Well we have to stop using that because these are not considered to be good words

in English. So in today's lesson, Im going to help you with some alternatives to the

swear words. So let's get started.

The very first and the most common swear word that many people especially teenagers end

up using is the F*** word. yes the F*** word, when you are angry, when you are frustrated

or even when you are just not doing anything but you are so used to swearing that you end

up using the F*** word for anything and everything. Now if you do so, stop doing that and if you

have that urge of saying the F*** word, well take it back and try using these words here.

So the alternatives to the F*** word are fudge. So if you are angry, if you made a mistake.

Okay you are writing and something and you made a mistake, rather than using the F***

word, well try and say Oh fudge. Okay if you don't wanna use the word fudge, you have another

option, which is Oh freak! Okay. So maybe you are walking on the road and you see someone

crossing the road and he was almost about to bump into a car. So you are gonna be like

Oh freak, be careful. Okay many people tend to say, oh F***. Yes they do that but don't

use this word, try and using the words Oh fudge! Or oh freak! And many people when they

are extremely tired, they say uh... I am f***ing tired. So stop using that f***ing word and

you can say I am flipping tired, right? So even when you watch movies if the actor mentions

any of these words either there is a beep, beep, beep, beep or if you look at the sub

titles, they would never show any of these words.

So let's move on to another word which is commonly used by many people that is shit.

Oh shit! Yes have you heard that before? Im sure you have. So oh shit! Like you break

something and you tend to say, Oh shit! Thats broken. Stop doing that, instead of the word

shit, nobody likes to hear that word, nobody wants to talk about poop, right? So try and

using the word shoot. Oh shoot! Okay that's how you're gonna use it. Or if you are wanting

to use the word shit, try and using a better word for it, which is crap. Oh crap! Okay

that's how you can use this word.

Next one, what the hell? Yes have you come across that? Maybe you are at your workplace

and someone made a mistake in their presentation and you are like what the hell! Well again

it is considered to be quite an offending word. So instead of using the hell word, you

could use the word heck. What the heck! Sounds a little better but yes try and avoid using

the word hell and try to use the word, heck. What the heck! Right? Many people also say

bloody hell! So better words than bloody hell are bloody heck! Okay.

Lets have a look at another word which is damn. Yes if you watch a lot of Hollywood

films, you might have come across these words. Many people say like, oh damn! I gotta meet

this girl tonight. Oh damn! I'm late. Oh damn! I have to rush for work. So stop using the

word if you are and instead of using the word damn, you could use Oh dang! Or Oh darn! Again

if you watch movies and when the actors use the word damn, the sub titles would never

show this word. Instead of that word, the sub titles will show the words like dang or

darn. Oh darn! right, so even if you have to use this word or if you have that urge

of using the word damn, try to avoid it because yes it is considered to be offending and use

the word dang or darn.

Lets move on to another swear word which is son of a bitch. Oh this man, I'm so annoyed,

he is such a son of a bitch. Do you think that sounds good? No people are not gonna

appreciate if you tend to use these words. So better words to express that anger for

someone is son of a gun. Huh... son of a gun, this man, he is so annoying. So rather than

saying son of a bitch, you could use the term son of a gun.

Alright, let's move on to some religious swear words. Yes there are people who have a habit,

who also use a lot of religious swear words, uh many people do not appreciate that. Definitely

people are not gonna like using anything related to the God, right? So rather than using one

of these three swear words, i have some alternatives for you. So the first one is Oh my God! Yes

we do have the word God here but do not use it, okay. Its considered to be sacred.

So rather than saying Oh my God! Try to say my gosh. Now someone tells you a bad news,

Okay you don't like it. You feel that it's just terrible. So like human tendency, we

tend to say Oh my god! Really? So rather than saying, Oh my God! Really, try to use my gosh

or my goodness. They sound a little better and you would not offend anyone. So you gotta

be very careful when you use these words. So try to avoid them as much as you can and

try to use the words like my gosh or my goodness!

Another term that I have for you is, Jesus. Jesus, really you did that? Yes many people

use the word Jesus to swear which is again not a good habit. So instead of using the

word Jesus. You can use words like, Jeez or Geez, spelt either way, either with a J or

with a G and pronounced as geez. Yes so again you made a mistake, yes you can use the word

like geez or jeez, rather than saying Jesus.

Alright and then the last term that people use is Holy shit. What happened to him? Holy

shit! Hes no more. This is another swear word which many people are not going to like,

are not gonna appreciate it. So what are the alternatives to this phrase? We have for you

Holy cow! So rather than using holy shit! You can say, holy cow! Yeah that sounds a

little better, isn't it? So these are some swear words, there are many more. Be very

cautious; be very careful when you use these words. Please tend to avoid them as much as

you can and try to use these words if you really have to express your anger or your

frustration or your surprise or shock, right? And I'll be back with a new lesson soon, till

then, you take care and have a great day.
