50px A user suggests that this Entry should be cleaned up, giving the reason: “1) Are the adjective and adverb uses really different, or are they both actually "generic intensifiers"? 2) The noun use: curse or swear word. Is that the same or different as the use as interjection?”.
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.
