cutedeadgirl recently commented on the American hangup on profanity. Today, I realized where it came from. Remember, I am not a scholar.

Lenny Bruce owed his career to William the Conqueror!

The "7 words you can't say on TV" derive from the Norman conquest. Saxon (Germanic) words are crude and profane, Norman (French) words are sophisticated and polite.

NOTE: Insert story of Helewise and Liuth, with conjection on name versus philonym*
