Living life euphemistically

The English language has developed a 'morally correct' way of saying many things, and euphemism examples are the best indicators of this. There are many phrases, words, or acts that when referred to in normal words bring out an astounded and offended reaction from many people. Euphemism examples are literary devices that attempt to disguise the offending part and replace it with a better sounding and less explicit substitution.

The birth of euphemism examples can be attributed to the spread of media, as more and more people started getting offended by certain words. Moreover, they also felt that these certain words had a negative effect on children and countering this became the moral duty of the people creating content. There are plenty of euphemism examples in literature as well, where the author effectively manages to disguise a certain part of the text that may offend certain sections of the readers.

For example:
“I did not lie, I just say something that is terminological in exactitude.”

Euphemistic language is sugar coating the society from the painful truth. Sometimes to hide the dark secret so that it will seems like something normal, common and not to be worried about.
