Занятное языковое, эвфемизмы сленга и наоборот - morfizm


May. 30th, 2017 05:24 pm Занятное языковое, эвфемизмы сленга и наоборот

"a really big/cool/great/nasty/terrible something (whatever quality the something has, it's being greatly emphasized)"
=> "(one) hell of a something" (сленговая форма оригинала)
=> "(one) heck of a something" (эвфемизм сленга)
=> "(one) hecuva something" (сленговая форма эвфемизма!)
