Agadir - It is strange how youngsters learning foreign languages seek to break the “ban” on the use of taboo words and expressions. They know they are there but nobody would introduce them to the realm of the forbidden so they resort to their own ingenuity to find out. At this stage in life they may think the more foul and obscene language they have in their repertoire the better they are equipped with “verbal weapons” they could use on their rivals to settle differences. They may as well falsely think of learning taboo words and expressions as a sign of adulthood and freedom.
