Swearing in Harry Potter


Recommended Posts

I'm just re-reading Prisoner of Azkaban.

from Grim Defeat:

(Ron) 'D'you know what that -' (he called Snape something that made Hermione say 'Ron!') - is making me do?...'

I wonder how they'll handle that! Hehe. You can get away with blanking things out in books.

If not the later then i expect something like this.(Ron) 'D'you know what that (jerk) is making me do?...'

Yes, all British people say wanker, all the time! *sigh*

Seriously though, that's probably the best curse he could be given. Beats 'bloody this' and 'bloody that'.

I never said all British people say it all the time. I happen to have several British friends and I am fairly familiar with some of the slang. I was making a joke. Lighten up.

Nothing personal. Just trying to inject something a little more interesting into this conflict-fearing forum :happybday:

'D'you know what that smeghead is making me do?...'

Although I'd prefer ''D'you know what that git is making me do?...'

Get's into the english flavor, but it won't happen. The producers will be scared American's won't know what it means.

Justin - :roll:
