Verb sense "to fuck". If it can be attested, then what sense of fuck? I think it would mean to shout expletives at (something), not "to fuck" which is vague. -- 203.217.41.136 02:21, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

  • From the quote given, it seems to mean "to swear" i.e. to use f-words. SemperBlotto 06:43, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Cited. Appears to be all senses. —Internoob (DiscCont) 23:12, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure the following is usage rather than mention but I include it for possible use in citing related terms and amusement:
  • 1995 March 16, w:Mike Royko, “USE OF THE LANGUAGE HAS GONE TO H-WORD”, Chicago Tribune, page 3:
    Pointing at the TV set, Slats Grobnik said: "Hey, how come those a-words who keep talking about the n-word don't use plain English. What the h-word is going on?" / "The O.J. trial. They want to know if this cop ever used the n-word because if he used the n-word, it would mean he is a bigot and sure as heck planted a glove as evidence and that would mean that O.J. didn't kill nobody and we'll all live happily ever after." / [] [if you used the] cword oh boy you could really be in deep sword And if you said that to someone you worked with she could haul you in to court and youd be all fworded up"

  • I agree with SemperBlotto that in the 2010 quotation it means “to use the word fuck” rather than “to fuck”. And the other two cites are actually for F-word. —RuakhTALK 17:11, 31 July 2010 (UTC)

Use of the f word[edit]

In some shows that are rated pg (such as news or current affairs) there are uses of the f-word (both in text (f***) and speech (f-censor)). Why is it OK to have those when it clearly means "fuck"? Why do they not have to use "****" or "$&£|€*@$+*¥" instead? --Ababcdc1 (talk) 23:04, 7 May 2015 (UTC)
