What term describes a non-offensive substitute for a swear word?
Is there a term for replacing one slang word with another made-up slang word?
At what point do the made up words turn into recognized/official words? For example I'm pretty sure I can use most of the above replacements and people will know what I mean,
fracking being most used.
Even if a replacement becomes commonly used, at what point would it end up in say the OED?
