Keyes, Ralph
Euphemania - Our Love Affair with Euphemisms
Finding Comfort in Euphemisms When Words Make Us Feel Uneasy

"Euphemania - Our Love Affair with Euphemisms" by Ralph Keyes

How did "die" become "kick the bucket", "underwear" become "unmentionables", and "having an affair" become "hiking the Appalachian trail"? Originally used to avoid blasphemy, honor taboos, and make nice, euphemisms have become embedded in the fabric of our language. "EUPHEMANIA" traces the origins of euphemisms from a tool of the church to a form of gentility to today's instrument of commercial, political, and postmodern doublespeak.

As much social commentary as a book for word lovers, EUPHEMANIA is a lively and thought-provoking look at the power of words and our power over them.

Ralph Keyes is the author of 15 books, including "The Courage to Write" and "I Love It When You Talk Retro". He has written for Esquire, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, GQ, Newsweek, and Harper's. Keyes lives in Yellow Springs, Ohio, where he writes, lectures, and is a Trustee of the Antioch Writers' Workshop.

RALPH KEYES: A lot of pigs are going to die. But we're not comfortable saying "die". If you walk through old graveyards, and I've done this, sometimes even the old, old tombstones would talk about "Worms are eating his corpse" and "Soon, you shall be like me". Nowadays we wouldn't dream of using words like those. You know, people "pass", they "pass on", they "went over", you know, they were "called home".
...
RALPH KEYES: The oldest known euphemism is "bear". "Bear" is a derivation of "bruin", which means "the brown one". And some of our earliest ancestors in northern Europe were so afraid of this large, ferocious animal that they wouldn't even say its actual name. "Bear" has now become, of course, the standard word for this animal. We no longer know what the original word was.
