What is euphemism?

Euphemism is used to express a mild, indirect, or vague term to substitute for a harsh, blunt, or offensive term. Euphemism is often contrasted with dysphemism. Some euphemisms intend to amuse, while others intend to give positive appearances to negative events or even mislead entirely.

Examples:

These are examples of euphemism:
  • Going to the other side for death,
  • Do it or come together in reference to a sexual act.
  • Passed away for die.
  • On the streets for homeless.
  • Adult entertainment for pornography.
  • Comfort woman for prostitute
  • Between jobs for unemployed.
