A random question,
In English I use words like 'bloody', 'damn', 'darn', 'blimmin', 'bleedin', 'freaking', to express frustration without using harsh swear words. (Ok maybe 'freaking' is just a spin on a swear word to make it sound less harsh)
"You took your bloody time!"
"I can't find the blimmin TV remote!"
"Im pretty damn hungry!"
Are there an equivalent ways to express frustration without using really harsh swear words?
I know that these words are very region dependent but is there a common word that is widely accepted in most regions?
These are really common colloquialisms in English (at least where I live). You also hear them often in movies or TV shows when people want to avoid using harsh swear words.
