Hey potty mouths, I’m Trace and this is a freaking DNews Short.
We’ve talked before about the history of swearing and how it can relieve physical pain.
But now new research published in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science
found that people who swear more are associated with higher levels of honesty and integrity!
F*** yeah!
I’m super honest!
Since swearing is a form of self-expression, the researchers say, "those who do it more are
portraying themselves more honestly than those who refrain."
So, if you swear like a sailor (and I know I do), you’re probably more honest than
people who swear less or don’t at all!
In the study, 276 participants told researchers how much they swear in their daily lives.
They were given a questionnaire which assesses a person’s honesty using what they
call a “Lie Scale.”
By comparing those results with the person’s level of swearing, the researchers found out that
swearing was associated with higher levels of honesty.
In another part of the study, the researchers analyzed over 73,000 Facebook statuses from
people in the United States.
The statuses were run through software that was programmed to find swear words and also words
that indicate deception.
Once again, those who swore more tended to also be those who told the truth.
And there are other studies that may back these findings.
For example, in criminal cases, innocent suspects were more likely to curse than guilty suspects
when denying accusations!
Plus, people who swear during jury testimonies are perceived to be more credible.
So the next time your mom yells at you for swearing, just say you were being honest!
Science says that's ok.
See how it goes.
Speaking of lying, is it ever ok to lie?
Check out this video to find out.
What do you think about these new findings?
Do you think people who are swearing are more honest?

影片簡介

1integrity0:20

2swear like a sailor0:31
傳說 swear like a sailor 這個片語最早來自倫敦的傳統魚市場,因為那兒的漁夫、搬運工出了名的喜歡邊罵髒話、邊喝酒、邊唱歌來度過漫長的等待時光,因此 swear like a sailor 這個片語便誕生了,現在引申為「很會、很喜歡罵髒話」的意思。
Although she seems sweet and innocent, but after a few drinks, she'll start swearing like a sailor.
她雖然表面上看起來像甜美的小女孩,但喝了幾杯下去後,她就會嗨起來,開始大罵髒話。


「罵髒話」除了可以用 swear 之外,cursecuss 這兩個字也是一樣的用法。
Kids, please do not curse in class.
孩子們,請不要在上課時罵髒話。


3run through sth.1:01
run + through 這兩個字組合在一起再加上人或物有非常多種用法,今天我們先介紹 run through 後面加上一個「東西」。而光是 run through sth. 就有三種意思,首先是「快速過目、瀏覽、檢查」,再來是「貫穿、遍佈」,最後則是指「很快花完」。
I'd like to run through your essay with you. I don't think you're making sense in some of the paragraphs.
我想和你快速討論一下你的報告,我覺得有些段落一點邏輯都沒有。

The theme of feminism runs through all of her films.
女權主義貫穿了她拍攝的所有電影。

I can't believe it only took you 5 days to run through all the allowance that your parents gave you this month!
我不敢相信你竟然只花了五天,就花完你爸媽這個月給你的零用錢!

4testimony1:22
testimony 的意思是「(法庭上的)證詞、證言」。
Your records contradict what you're trying to tell us. Your testimony won't be able to weigh against the records.
你所表達的跟法律文件裡記載的不一樣,你的證詞將會無法贏過已紀錄的事項。


小編最近很沉迷於 "Suits" 《金裝律師》這部美國法律影集,除了男主角很帥之外內容也很精彩,在這邊跟大家介紹一些看法律劇一定要知道的幾個法律名詞。

judge 法官
jury 陪審團
plaintiff 原告
defendant 被告
trial 審判
under oath 宣示要誠實

在美國法庭上,法官會要求證人做這樣的宣示:
Do you solemnly swear that you will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
你是否發誓你說的都是實話,完整實情陳述,絕不說謊?


perjury 偽證罪(也就是 under oath 卻說了謊所犯下的罪行)
deposition 口供、書面證詞
subpoena 傳喚、傳票(這個字的發音為 /səbˋpinə/b 不發音,o 也不發音。)

看完今天的影片是不是有感到欣慰一點呢?下次有人叫你別再罵髒話了,就可以告訴他這個理(ㄐㄧㄝˋ)由(ㄎㄡˇ)囉!(笑)
