Phobia Wiki

Zomaiphobia is the fear of the word "f***". Some people don't like to hear swearing, and once they do, they will express extreme anger and irritation.

The phobia's name is derived from the Greek word ζῶ (zô), meaning "life", as the word "f***" refers to a method of reproduction.

The actual word has been removed so as not to harm those with this phobia.

Using “funk” and “frick” can really help when talking to a zomaiphobic friend.
