This phenomenon by expansion dysphemism, is attached politeness through the concept of the face; to be sure x-phemism can be divided in relation to the notion of face and face affront. The function of euphemism is preserving the speaker’s or writer, public image or face in communicative interactions and hence maintaining the social concord in interpersonal relations by avoiding the potential face-affronts that some taboo word expressions may present (Crespo-Fernandez 2015: xi.p. 45-46).
