In cartoons and comics, profanity is often depicted by substituting symbols ("grawlixes") for words.

Profanity is the act of using swear words. The adjective is 'profane'. Profanities can also be called curse ("cuss") words, dirty words, bad words, foul language, obscenity, obscene language, or expletives. It can be called an oath, although this word also has a normal meaning of a "solemn promise".

Religious profanity is called blasphemy.
