Abstract

The study investigated the use of taboo words in a specific movie, namely Not Another Teen Movies. Taboo stimuli are exceptionally stirring, yet it has been recommended that they likewise have inborn explicit properties, for example, taboo, offensiveness, disagreeableness, or even shock value. Nonetheless, taboo words frequently contrast from different words on something beyond excitement and forbidden properties. In the present study, the researchers replicated both of these discoveries and directed detailed item analyses to figure out which word properties drive a few impacts. The study concludes that the taboo words have several functions. Those are expressing desire, insulting people, expressing pride, cursing and disappointment, metaphor, literal meaning, openness, and hatred expression.
