Experts in the UK asked 500 women what they thought the world’s most unpleasant words were and the responses were reduced to 6 universally disliked selections:
“The common denominator seems to be disgust, either toward bodily functions or sex,” Paul Thibodeau, a language psychologist at Oberlin College, told Yahoo Health.
Other words which made the list were words like “chunky” which were rejected in the context of body shape where it represents a “full-figured” body shape but found to be OK when used to describer peanut butter.
The word “flap” which many associated with a skin flap, a phrase and context that most women dread.
And so we ask you: what you think of these words and which words you find the ugliest in the English language?
