Expletive Deleted: A Good Look at Bad Language - Ruth Wajnryb I absolutely loved this book and Ruth Wajnryb's masterful blend of linguistic analysis and tongue-in-cheek commentary on "swearing." I don't consider myself a linguistics nerd by any means so there were some moments when the linguistic vocabulary felt a little over my head, but for the most part I found the book extremely accessible and relevant to anyone, like myself, who is interested in sociology and cultural construction. There were also some parts that were laugh-out-loud funny, which made this one of the most enjoyable non-fiction books I've ever had the fortune to read.
