In that case, use the cuss words to teach the alphabet, maybe make new ones so there will be at least 26 swear words.

I could hear it now.

of course they do, they learn to talk before they spell or learn the alphabet. if they hear curse words.. they learn curse words first...

think we have all had toddlers who repeat our bad words.. its usually the time we clean up our language..

duh...

If they heard the alphabet daily they would know it as well. They hear curse words daily so they soak them in and spit them back out.
People don't think when they speak around children.
