Taboo and Euphemism in the Religious Language

Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
We propose in this paper to review the main religious taboos specific to the religious language and the description of the pragmatic valences that the euphemistic expression manifests in the religious communication. We use the "linguistic taboo" when referring to terms, syntagms, phrases, etc. whose utterance is forbidden within a certain linguistic community. Manifested essentially by prohibitions and restrictions, the taboo was mainly paired with religious prohibitions, although the origin of the taboo phenomena predates any religion. The sacred taboos are traditional taboos that have accompanied the human civilization since its beginnings, and which, in one form or another, exist in all cultures of the world, constituting anthropological universal elements. Whereas the pragmatic purpose of euphemistic speech was originally to attenuate the impact that the message could have had upon the interlocutor, the analysis of the contemporary religious discourse demonstrated that the euphemisms acquires new pragmatic dimensions related to the desire to conceal the negative social aspects and deficiencies in order to promote a positive image of reality.
