Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Let the squeamish beware!

Watch Your F*cking Language takes a no-holds-barred approach to taboo words and expressions. It shows you how to use them to your advantage — and have fun doing so. Building on the lessons learned in English as a Second F*cking Language, this book emphasizes traditional English swears as well as powerful (and hidden) expressions from other cultures and languages.

Through numerous examples, it puts the real language of real people into context:

FLOYD: I just heard a Dan Quayle speech. It was really f*cking confusing.

RUBY: I just got back from a Mongolian cluster f*ck. It was really confusing f*cking.

The name of the game is communication, and Watch Your F*cking Language shows readers how to hammer home their messages with confidence and gusto.

Among its features:

*Numerous examples of proper (and so-called improper) usage

*An Idioms section that emphasizes the niceties of swearing

*A "Need to Know, "Nice to Know," and "Forget It" system for identifying swear words

*A Final F*cking Exam

Synopsis:

For Johnson, swearing is essential to effective communication. With this in mind, he has developed this hilarious guidebook on how to curse effectively in detail, with numerous examples taken from everyday life.

About the Author

World-renowned for his innovative lectures and workshops, Professor Sterling Johnson has been teaching English as a second language for over twenty years. He now lives in Pacific Grove, California, where he enjoys a "nice f*cking day" as much as the next fellow.
