On cursing

Ann Leckie weighs in, very politely.

I absolutely agree that cursing is a distinct neurological state-- I learned to curse when I was about 12, and using bad words feels drastically different from normal language.

The link has a *lot* about both cursing and restricting cursing being ways of enforcing status. There's probably a parallel about making and forbidding loud noises.
