So no, it is not “a swear.” It is a similar-sounding word substituted for a vulgar term, when using the actual vulgar term would be inappropriate.
A swear word is a word or phrase that’s generally considered blasphemous, obscene, vulgar, or otherwise offensive. These are also called bad words, obscenities, expletives, dirty words, profanities, and four-letter words. “Swear words serve many different functions in different social contexts,” notes Janet Holmes.
The f-word can be a very hurtful, offensive, mean, and/or vulgar word. Most importantly, where the use of the word will not be considered offensive (most of the time). The article should not be read by children, but to be on the safe side, it will not use the full spelling of the word.
