Language Timothy!

I found a link on the Intranet boards to some research done by the Broadcasting Standards Commission on swearing on television [PDF]. I have to say I am quite surprised that wanker came so high up the list in terms of severity. I've always thought it was a fairly lighthearted term.
I confess I find the research highly amusing mainly because it critically analyses words that you would normally never see in academic papers!
