cacophemism Search for pronunciation examples


The use of a more expressive, more distasteful word in place of another. It would be the opposite of euphemism.
Eu in greek means well or good; kakos means bad or evil.
The use of the word corpse instead of the deceased is a good example.

    Crazy Indie rock and cats lover, genuine, creative, annoying and lovable! The kind of person you will be always happy with : D I am not a party girl, love the peace of my bedroom, love to read, to draw... It seems kind of boring but I would say I have a different conception of & quot; having fun& quot;... I have it, definitely. Hope to find someone that I can feel related to, start an awesome friendship and be able to help each other to improve language skills. See u then :)

    Soy mas de la mitad mejor de lo que tu crees, con una pizca de maldad menor o igual a la tuya... No he llegado a donde quiero, pero no estoy donde estaba, entonces... todo va como debe!!! I am more than half better than you think, with a hint of evil or less yours ... I have not gotten to where I want, but I&# 39; m not where I was, then ... everything is as it should!
