Later use of the words[edit]

I think any unreferenced addition in the Later use of the words section should be removed, there's many that borderline encyclopedic and just "why is this in here". I was going to be bold but adding this won out. Mlpearc (open channel) 23:17, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

I am not normally inclined to delete content other editors have made the effort to compile, but I agree this is in the wrong place. We don't need a list of every time somebody F-bombed on live TV. It is leading the substance of this article astray. I suggest we create an article something like List of unacceptable language incidents on live broadcast; a list that the 7 words would appear upon.

Yeah I agree, it's the kind of thing that can spin out of control and end up dominating the article. I'm going to heavily prune it (maybe to just the first recorded instances or something) very shortly unless someone comes up with a very good reason why not :-) Dylanfromthenorth (talk) 13:11, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Notification of a TFA nomination[edit]

In the past, there have been requests that discussions about potentially controversial TFAs are brought to the attention of more than just those who have WP:TFAR on their watchlist. With that in mind: Fuck: Word Taboo and Protecting Our First Amendment Liberties has been nominated for an appearance as Today's Featured Article. If you have any views, please comment at Wikipedia:Today's featured article/requests. — Cirt (talk) 20:10, 1 November 2014 (UTC)

Steven Pinker[edit]

Is it worth mentioning the book of the same title by Steven Pinker? (talk) 20:15, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
