Abstract

Euphemisms are the forms of language used to replace unpleasant, inappropriate and undesired words. In linguistics, however, the words that are forbidden or unwanted in a particular society are referred to as taboo words. Since these two terms have an entirely opposite meaning it is particularly interesting to examine their parallel use. Their expressive and impressive values in different functional styles diverge and the purpose of this paper is to examine the use and linguistic-stylistic values of euphemisms and taboo words within different functional styles.
