Do you know what an infix is?

Well, if you don't, let me ex-f*cking-plain it to you. Or should I? Do you really need an ex-f*cking-planation? Maybe you already under-f*cking-stand what it is. I mean, geez, you should.

That sounds like work jargon.... perhaps related to some sort of inbred fixation achieved quickly.

It's definitely a real thing, and it's pretty much always a swear word or a sub for a swear word (like freaking).

Do you know the rule for where the infix is placed? It's just before the more heavily accented syllable. Some words have more than one accented syllable, but the stresses are of varying degrees.

Take the word "unbelievable". The -liev- part is the more heavily stressed syllable, but the -be- right before it has a secondary stress. So you can throw the infix in, either before the -liev- part or before the -be- part, but it sounds better before the -liev- part. And, putting the infix in any other part of the word sounds wrong. Try it.

"You're unbelieff*ckable" sure sounds like you're saying something else Razz

I dunno about "you're unbef*ckinglievable" sounding better than "you're unf*ckingbelievable" though. Second one sounds better to me (but who am I, its not even my first language)

Disagree with you there, nimh. It's got a cadence when done by the rules.

One of the perks of having worked in the voice recognition industry is learning such bits o' trivia.
