Description
Euphemisms are generally innocuous words and expressions used in place of others considered indecent or inappropriate. Euphemisms make our speech "softer", "embellish" the reality, and such words and expressions are present in every language. English is no exception; this language is full of euphemisms that only become more complicated over the course of time.
