Swear words are not located in the linguistic part of the brain, but in the emotive part. This is why when a person feels any form of extreme emotion, they are more likely to swear. submitted by differentinfrench

Some have argued that this is also why swear words tend to slip out in moments of intense emotion.
Rather than being a deliberate choice like the words we speak, expletives are more so a reflex.
