Friends, Readers, and Fellow Bloggers
There are a number of students I teach and interact with during the school hours at the all boys high school where I currently work. The problem is that some of these boys like to use the F-word: a word of which I am not fond. I am also making the assumption that your readers too are not fond of this word. I'm in the process of developing a list of alternative words for my students to use in place of the F-word and an assignment in conjunction with this list as 'punish work' for using the F-Word on campus.
However, everything I sit down to make a list of words for this project/task, my mind goes blank. This might be due to my dropping the word from my vocabulary. Part of the problem is that the students use the F-Word in so many different parts of speech: noun, verb, adverb, adjective, direct objects and indirect objects. About the only part of speech it isn't used as is a preposition, but I'm sure if I looked hard enough I would find a kid making entire sentences out of the f-word.
I am hoping you can help me compile a list of alternative words to use in place of the F-Word.
