And no, it’s not about the political landscape! Benjamin Bergen is a linguist in the Cognitive Science Department at UC San Diego. On Wednesday, November 16,  he will discuss his new book: “What the F*%+” and explain how the mind computes the meaning of words and sentences. He’ll also be talking about why we swear, what makes a word profane and how the brain processes curse words. 
Don’t worry—soap is not included in the breakfast menu!
