Profanities listed as 'idioms' on Turkish institute’s website
A screenshot from the TDK website shows two "F-word" expressions included in the idioms and proverbs dictionary.Numerous swearwords and slang terms have been listed in the "idioms and proverbs" dictionary on the Turkish Language Institute's (TDK) official website, daily Hürriyet reported today.
The institute spelled out uncensored versions of numerous profanities on its website – which is frequented by grown-ups and children alike – providing definitions for the slang terms under the category of "idioms."
Two expressions on the website casually featured the "F-word" without any warning to visitors on the nature of the foul language. The slang terms "F*** it" and "to get the f*** out of somewhere" were listed as idioms and were given explanations on their meanings.
One proverb on the website also contained strong language, reading, "One does not go into the bridal chamber with a stranger's d**k," which meant, "One should not make future plans trusting the resources of others," according to the TDK.
Other idioms and proverbs featured comparably less offensive parts of the anatomy, but in a rather graphic nature, such as the expression, "To shove someone up a dog's a** " which means "to humiliate someone," and the proverb "Everyone spits on a bare a**," which according to the TDK, meant "Everyone is revolted by disgusting acts."
