Das unanständige Lexikon: Tabuwörter der deutschen Sprache - download pdf or read online

By Robert Sedlaczek,Christoph Winder

Die Tabuwörter der deutschen Sprache sind starke Wörter: Wer sie gebraucht, der weiß, dass er mit ihnen eine große Wirkung erzielt. Comedians verwenden sie als Fanfarenstöße, um das Publikum aus der Lethargie zu reißen, Schriftsteller vertrauen auf ihren aufrüttelnden Effekt.
Den Autoren Robert Sedlaczek und Christoph Winder, zwei ausgewiesenen Sprachexperten, geht es nicht darum, die "Ehre" dieser Schmuddelkinder aus der Sexual- und Fäkalsphäre zu retten. Vielmehr wollen sie die große regionale Vielfalt dokumentieren, klären, wie diese Wörter entstanden sind und welche Geschichte sie wie in einem Rucksack mit sich herumtragen.
Belegstellen aus Volksliedern, Schüttelreimen, Kabarettprogrammen, Internetquellen, Zeitungen und literarischen Werken - von Goethe über Brecht und Elfriede Jelinek bis hin zu Charlotte Roche - zeigen, dass das Feld der unanständigen Wörter überaus vielfältig, anarchisch bunt und amüsant ist.
