Jesse Sheidlower: The F-Word

Oxford English Dictionary editor at large Jesse Sheidlower discusses his new, in-depth look at that most offensive, rhymes-with-pluck, four-letter English obscenity, The F-Word.

This second edition includes many new words and phrases, F-words from Britain, Ireland, and Australia, and hundreds of new examples of usage. Words, explanations, and examples come from thousands of sources, including Lord Rochester, Norman Mailer, e.e. cummings, Ernest Hemingway, Liz Phair, Jack Kerouac, Anne Sexton, Playboy, and the Internet.
