Has there ever been a Star Wars book where there were other swear words than damn, and sith?
Corran or others in Stackpole novels have said 'bastard', I believe.
Depends on what you mean by swear words. Real life or Star Wars. With Star Wars swears, we get swears such as:
By the Force
Those are just a few that we can find. And By the Force is only a swear depending on how it's used. Think of it as the equivelent of say Hell. Depends on how you use it.
I can't think of any specifically, but I don't see why they'd be needed in the first place, to be honest. Firstly because SW is a seperate place than here, it wouldn't fit to see Jacen start yelling "***K YOU VONG!". Secondly, the SW movie series was originally written for kids, and as amusing as it may be, it's still kinda sad to hear a 6-year-old call someone a *******.
Swearing's overrated in rl anyways.
Any swear word counts. Thanks for the ones you gave me!
Isn't it amazing how every few months the same topics seem to crop up again?
Emperor's nose, vaping moffs...
I think damn, hell, and piss(ed) have been used, as well as bastard. I may be mistaken about piss(ed).
I dont see a problem with ***t or b!tch. With the exception of the Big F, I use them all in my fanfics.
Poodoo doesnt sound right coming out of a soldier's mouth in the middle of battle. Call me crazy, but...
Someone says pissed in one of the PT era AU stuff, i think its either a comic or the DM novel.
Also Han calls the Yevethan leader a bastard in the Black Fleet Crisis
Lorn Pavan says it in Shadow Hunter.
Jaina says Hutt Breath! in SbS - so I guess that can be taken as an expletive
DonÂ´t forget Bantha Fodder!!
Kyp once said "No Sith". Made me laugh
This is an insult but I think it works...
Why you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking, nerfherder!
my all time fav is "Kriff". i use it so much my parents tell me not to use the 'K'-word! it's funny.
i dont think they should overload it, but man if i was them, i'd be yelling all the words i knew. maybe they should make up words that sound harsher. usually when someone is in a tight situation, they cuss. it just emphasises the point. i dont think sithspit or emperor's black bones really emphasizes it enough. that's just me...
Off the top of my head, I can remember:
Those are the ones I can remember.
In Jabba the Hutt: The Art of the Deal, Jabba says, "We've been farkled!" I've always liked that one.
han called someone a sob in the bfc.
sons of sows really got on my nerves in cotj.
I hate this one. It's a sentence, for heaven's sake. One worders are what they need. I don't like ours either, they're too dirty. Something besides another specific person "Sith", or whoever, would be better.
It depends. The Solo kids were very high-born, and swearing is mostly a (bad) habit. If you don't use it, you don't.
I remember Corran and others using "frinking" instead of "****ing" in Side Trip (Tales of the NR). (OK, it may be in Tales of the Rebellion, Im not 100% sure.)
For my taste, most of the language in SW is very artificial and too cultured to be realistic, but so what, this _is_ SW after all.
The TPM novelization will probably have Jar Jar saying "stinkowiff" in it...
The words "Mara Jade" are obscenities of the highest order.
