A Comprehensive Essay On The Versatility Of The Word Fuck

A Comprehensive Essay On The Versatility Of The Word Fuck

Fuck fuckity, fuck, fuck, fuck. It's one of the greatest and most used swear words in our vast lexicon. But what makes the word fuck so great?

It's versatility. Fuck, and it's derivatives, can be used to express a wide variety of the gamut of human emotion. Here's a breakdown of the different ways you can crowbar it into your everyday conversation.

Fuck Off

Simple, quick, no-nonsense. Fuck off.

Rules Of Use: You can fuck off, yet you can't fuck back. However, you can get the fuck back.

Fuck Up

Again the brevity is what makes 'fuck up' so attractive. Also 'fuck up' can be used to shut someone up but also a term to describe someone who's life hasn't panned out quite the way they would have liked.

Rules Of Use: You can fuck up, but you can't fuck down. You also cannot fuck left, yet you can fuck right off.

Fucking

Can be used to emphasise pretty much anything. That fucking muffin was fucking delicious I hope to fuck we get more of the fuckers soon.

 

Get Fucked

A vitriolic use of 'fuck'. Often a last resort of a tired argument, you don't like the word fuck, then get fucked. Or if you like the more hiberno-english term 'Go be fucked.'

Fucker

Fucker can mean a wide variety of things. An arsehole can be a fucker, or if you're a bit brazen you might be referred to as a cheeky fucker.

Fuck

Fuck in it's purest form works as both a noun and a verb. Fuck me is a great term of surprise, fuck you is a straightforward rebuttal of anyone's argument.

The list of it's various uses is too great for this journalist to break down without having an aneurysm so instead I have collated the more popular uses of the profanity.

Using Fuck In The Middle Of Words

Abso-fucking-lutely, pa-fucking-thetic, irre-fucking-sponsible. It enhances any adjective.

N.B. Fuck can also mean to engage in sexual relations.
