I get annoyed when children use bad language – the small ones less than 10 years of age. How come that my blood boils with rage at the usage of such words, while playing a friendly cricket match ???? And how come the mother of the child sitting next to me, doesn’t hear those words at all ????
Then there are those teenagers who use all those swear words which need a lot of ***** to fill it up !!! Do they really know the meaning of these words ??? How can the other person hear those words and not at all be bothered by it and more so, he answers with another set of swear words !!??!!!! It’s not only English that is being used badly. The regional languages do suffer with the same torture.
And when I hear “I’ll kill you with my own hands, if you don’t catch that ball properly” and the one hearing it, laughs and finds his place in the field. I am shocked and annoyed and the boys are so cool about it. At this young age, if such usage is normal, then what will they be talking when they grow older ????
Yes, I’ve taught my daughters the swear words and their meanings, especially to distinguish between the good and bad words – particularly to understand when its being used against them. And certainly I make sure that they don’t use it while they speak with friends !!!!
Is it too much to ask for ??? A proper dialect. Doesn’t the language have so many wonderful words, which are musical to the ears and have such positive vibrations and wonderful meanings ??? Why can’t the whole statement modified to be pleasant to the ears ????
If the young ones are not taught properly by their parents, how will they learn the right thing ????
I am still shocked at the mother, who quietly decided to ignore her 5-year-old, swearing under his breath, when he failed to catch the ball !!!!
Or is it me ???? Am I the one thinking weird ???? I do agree that the ways of the world have changed, but is it too wrong to ask for a better language usage ?????
