CINCINNATI - Parents may want to watch their language the next time someone cuts them off on the highway because a new book is claiming children are learning to curse before they learn the alphabet.
Mohr claims a curse work is used about once every 140 words, according to a USA Today story . That makes foul language as popular as first person plural pronouns like “our,” “us” and “we.”
The book says children usually learn their first curse word around the age of 3 or 4. Also, Mohr says about 0.7% of spoken words on a given day are curse words.
The book, which is listed at a price of $24.95, tells the story of two kinds of swearing -- obscenities and oaths -- from ancient Rome and the Bible to today.

Divers with the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office entered the water of a Claremore pond around 8:30 a.m. to resume searching for 15-year-old Keith Chambers, who was last seen Sunday afternoon at his home nearby.
She calls herself the "Green Smoothie Girl," and with one of the most visited health and wellness sites on the Web her message has gone national.
A call about suspicious cars in midtown Tulsa led to two police chases early Tuesday morning.
