Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The definition Italian profanity ("parolacce," or "bestemmie" when referred to religious topics) refers to a set of words considered blasphemous or inflammatory in the Italian language. Italian language is considered a language with a large set of inflammatory terms and phrases, almost all of which originate from the several dialects and languages of Italy, such as the Tuscan dialect, which had a very strong influence in modern standard Italian, which is widely known to be based on Florentine language. Several of these words are cognates to other Romance languages, such as Portuguese, Spanish and French. Profanities differ from region to region, however a number of them are diffuse enough to be more closely associated to Italian language and featured in all the more popular Italian dictionaries.show more
