Getting Medieval: Swearing

  • The descriptions of bodily functions or the stuff that comes from it.
  • Most consider such language to be uncultured.
  • Commoners use graphic descriptions of language.
  • Merchants with similar language would only serve the common folk.
  • Merchants who swear like nobility are able to serve everyone.
  • Nobility swear with imagination: "A pox on you!" or "May ravens peck out your eyes."
  • 'Bastard' exists, but nobles will use this word correctly for a child born out of wedlock.

Other words instead of bastard
cad, cur, fiend, heel, knave, lout, louse, maggot, rascal, rat, rogue, rotter, scoundrel
