Curse words have been tabooed by society for hundreds of years now with many dating back to the early 1300’s. Since then, there have been some changes, but for the most part, the most popular words have stayed the same. One of the most popular curse words is “shit.” In modern language as a verb the word means to defecate, while as a noun, it takes on the role of feces. The power of a word is the effect that it has on the language and also the context in which the word fulfills. Throughout history, the word “shit” has been labeled as a curse word in society because of its effect as a word in certain context and the connection associated.
