Introduction Euphemisms have existed for a long time. The word “euphemism” comes from the Greek word “Euphemia”. The prefix “eu-” means “good”, the stem “pheme” means “speech” or “saying”. Many people have defined euphemism. Here are some of the definitions. (1) “(example of the) use of pleasant, mild or indirect words or phases in place of more accurate or direct ones.”[1] (2) “a polite word or expression that you use instead of a more direct one to avoid shocking or upsetting someone.”[2] (3) “a less direct word used instead of one that is harsh or blunt when referring to something unpleasant or embarrassing.”[3] (4) “Substitution of mild or vague or roundabout expression for harsh or direct one; Expression thus substituted.”[4] (5) “a polite word or expression that people use to talk about something unpleasant or embarrassing, such as death and sex.”[5] (6) “A euphemism is used as an alternative to a dispreferred expression, in order to avoid possible loss of face: Either one’s own face or, through giving offence, that of the audience, or of some third party.”[6] Just as the above definitions state, some harsh, blunt, unpleasant or offensive things in life should not be stated directly and truthfully in certain occasions. Under these circumstances, some better-sounding names should be used. Euphemism is a part of human language as well as a psychological and cultural phenomenon of different nations. The usage of English euphemism reflects ethics and behavioral code of people in English-speaking countries. From the day it came into being, euphemism functions as the lubricator of communication. Thus it enables people to live in harmony and makes conversations smooth and successful. The following parts hold a discussion on the origin, formation, classification and social function of English euphemisms. 2.
