In about 500 words, report on how the dictionaries handle the sensitive material
Exercise 4 Due: Look up any three “offensive” words — whether obscene, profane, or derogatory toward a race, ethnicity, nation, religion, class, gender, or sexual identity — in three different dictionaries. In about 500 words, report on how the dictionaries handle the sensitive material.
“Offensive” can be interpreted as broadly as you like, from the nastiest racial epithets or sex acts to the most gentle words like burp and fart. As always, I’m interested in seeing where you’re curiosity takes you. See how any three dictionaries treat the words and report on anything interesting you find. It’s part of your job to make things interesting. I’m leaving these assignments wide open because I want to see which way you take them. (this paper is for a female student, so kindly avoid extremely obscene words and make your choices interesting)
