[The Romanian people and cursing. Some journalistic opinions from the past]. In this
paper, we aim at examining precisely what some of the Romanian journalists, from the end of the 19th
century and the beginning of the 20th century, were writing about cursing, as it was understood at that
moment, and about those men prone to cursing. In order to conduct this research, many press articles have
been read, most of them published in journals such as România liberă, Gazeta Transilvaniei, Adevărul,
Țara noastră, Unirea poporului etc.
