    Interestingly, I read today that, before the 20s (this book is awesome), "hell" and "damn" were really shocking and were only used in "New York plays" to either get some laughs or gasps. The words started to become more common in the 20s because people wanted to be more shocking.

    Sounds familiar.

    isn't it more that the name is exchanged with a statement, first you have <insert name> and then it's "wife/man"
    it's alive but cannot be living, it's dead but lives a mortal life.
