Synonyms For Taboo

Posted: December 5, 2012 in Defining Taboo

The worst word in any language is taboo; and the best word in any language is taboo. The synonyms of taboo have filled eyes with tears, turned hands into weapons, made feet march, tongues curse, crowded hell and heaven. The past hugs taboo as if a circle of one. Yet the present scolds taboo. Time transforms taboo, makes it slough off its old tattered skin. Below is a list of so-called good and bad synonyms for taboo:

Good synonyms: revolution, evolution, changed, revised, new.

Bad synonyms: rebellion, restriction, sin, bizarre, ugly, wrong, illegal, rude, impolite, unacceptable, forbidden, banned, prohibition, different, changed, hated, broken, old, new.

History shows us that a synonym can become its antonym.
