Entertainment or Education?

Taboo English® is a satirical English education project, dedicated to the examination of how profanity used by native speakers of English can help speakers of other languages learn English. In other words, we give non-native speakers of English a shitload of words and phrases that native speakers use all the fucking time. We draw data especially from pop music, movies and online memes for insight into how language is used, for social commentary, but mostly for shits and giggles. Taboo English seeks to be kinda sorta what The Onion is to newspapers and The Daily Show is to TV news. Any learning that occurs by users of Taboo English is strictly accidental.
