OSU psychologist finds an aversion to swearing may lead to incorrect word pronunciation

A new study by Oklahoma State University’s Dr. Sarah Kucker and the University of Miami’s Dr. Lynn Perry examined how socially taboo words change how we say new words. In the study, participants read aloud made-up words that were spelled to either rhyme with a swear word, such as “kuck,” or rhyme with a neutral word, like “wug” rhyming with “rug”.
