    Tripping William asked me to add a word to this thread for him. He couldn't do it himself because it is a word he tries to never utter...or even type.

    The word is familiar to anyone who plays golf or has played golf for any length of time. It starts with an "s." It is five letters long. It rhymes with "dank."



    Dang it, I can't type it, either!!!

    I just learned a new word, and I like it: dysphemism (noun)

    Definition of dysphemism
    : the substitution of a disagreeable, offensive, or disparaging expression for an agreeable or inoffensive one
    also : an expression so substituted

    Makes sense. It's the opposite of euphemism.

    I like "loathe." Seems stronger than "hate" or "can't stand." More visceral.
