Letters to the Editor

Foul mouths indicate less intelligence

Re May 23 letter by Howard Shotton, “Don’t put up with foul language”

Thank you, Mr. Shotton for your comments on foul language. I totally agree with everything you said. I too find the foul mouths of many people offensive and revolting.

I did want to explain why I think people use so much foul language. It is the result of a limited vocabulary which people with lower intelligence have to use in their speaking. Their vocabulary does not include other words to use instead of the disgusting words they use.
