Due to the recent passing of my grandmother I've been thinking more and more of something she said when I was a little child. She said something like "The Finnish language can utterly destroy a person verbally" and "When I argue I prefer to do this in Finnish". Naturally this was quite interesting then, but needless to say she did not want to say any examples in front of our parents. Me being Swedish with no knowledge of Finnish whatsoever wants to know if anyone could enlighten me in this matter? Are other languages more limited in terms of profanities etc. than the Finnish language? If so, does anyone have any kind of explanation of how it came to be so?
