- For Teachers
I wonder if you could help me with this: What's the most common verb (either informal or slang) used in BrE that means the same as To Curse, or To Use Bad Language,...Say in a sentence like this: "He was drunken and kept ***ing the cops..." Thanks a lot...

Annoying, taunting, berating, insulting, testing,
the meaning/sense of 'abuse' and 'abusing' has changed in recent years - don't use it when referring to swearing.
