OK, long time since I actually posted here.

Well swear words are more of an "organic" form of expression, usually the phonetics have an onomatopoeic quality which reflects the emotion/context of its use.

Example:


I don't think swear words are necessarily negative because it depends on how they are used, words morph over time and that is why many words have different meanings than that which was originally recorded.

I will maybe have more to say on this in my next documentary series which will be out soon, still researching.
