Taboo , Gender and Power
The present study tries to shed light on two important elements found in language, i.e. taboo and gender and the correlation between them. Firstly, most languages hold taboo words and these taboo words are not randomly divided among male and female speakers .The gender differences in speech has occupied a large area and such differences are subjected to psychological , social , and constitutional factors . In this study, one can predict that male characters are known to be harder and crueler than females so one can see female characters are more polite and softer in society. Secondly, the genetic and acquired identity of the speaker is quite significant. The male identity uses more taboo words .The modern English society exceeds the primitive phase of life and it is such an educated society that forces one to imagine that her language is devoid from taboo words .The correlation between male and female characters constitutes another image in one's mind about taboo words . The present paper concludes that huge ancient deposits in English society can not easily be removed in one's mind and language .The western sources , books and films indicate that western society in spite of its modernity can not avoid that language .Thus filthy and forbidden language is the universal phenomenon available in the language of both speakers in certain fields.
