Would You Believe The Girls Are Dirtier Than Boys
We all know girls are made of sugar and spice and all things nice but it turns out our language might not be that sweet.
New research has found women swear more than men.
The study revealed guys currently drop the f-bomb 540 times per million words and girls are dropping it 546 times per million.
A similar study back in the 90's found women only used the f-bomb 167 times per million words.
Australian Linguistics expert Kate Burridge of Monash University puts it down to swearing becoming more acceptable in public, saying "There have been massive social changes that mean we're getting informal language in public much more than before. It's been on the increase the 1990's, especially in TV and Radio."
