    Interupter?

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by GuardianWynn, Oct 28, 2015.

    Okay in the sentence

    "We are going to (Curse word) get her back!"

    I realize that the real sentence is "we are going to get her back" and that the curse word is more emotional. Meaning it would like have something showing a pause. Right?

    So doe that mean the sentence should be "We are going to, curse, get her back!" ? Is that correct or is nothing needed? Or is something else needed?

    LOL Just realized, given the informal tone of the sentence "We're going to curse get her back!" Since an emotional person that curses is more likely to use a contraction. LEARNING! :D

    I'm unclear. Is the curse a startled aside, or an adverb?

    As in, to use Battlestar Galactica cursing, is it:

    "We're going to fracking get her back!"

    or

    "We're going to--frack!--get her back!"

    ?

    I prefer: -

    "We are going to get her the f*ck back!"

    Not sure which one is an adverb?

    I was thinking of fracking in this case.

    There is no freaking pause in the sentence, "we're going to fracking get her back," and therefore requires no interior freaking punctuation, dammit!
