In today’s world the stress levels are very high because of which people use some words which are not considered appropriate while communicating with other people. There is no denying the fact that a person should never cross the limits of decency as it may hurt the other person emotionally and it is also considered as uncivilized and ill-mannered behavior. However, there are some people who are quite habitual of swearing and they are not able to control themselves even if they try their best. Such people are usually considered as less intelligent and illiterate by the society but here we are going to analyze this assumption.
