tsimu mœ Lechai̯! That isba great article, really breaking down where manybof our insults in the real world come from. I founs this to be one of the hardest prompts to really answer, especially 300 words worthbof answer. Great job!

Thank you! I wish I had come up with a couple more original swears, but in the end I felt like I had covered enough ground as it was. Its definitely a tough question, but I'm glad this article answered it well enough for you!

I like the use of the IPA to show exactly how the words are pronounced, very handy (though somehow I doubt I'll be trying to curse someone out using Ivi)
The insults under "Local Cursing" are pretty creative - it makes sense that a society of bird-people would see insinuations of not being a bird-person as an insult.
And of course, you gotta have blasphemous "how dare you take our deity's name in vain" curses. Where's the fun in not having those?

Thank you! They all seemed like good insults to list, yeah! And without the IPA, its easy to stumble over the words, even when just reading.

The pronunciation guides are nice, as are the thought to how different anatomy/species would curse.
