    Invective is not 'taboo words'. What is the topic of your assignment? What is the question you are asked to address? (Not "What is your assignment about?")

    Thank you for answer!!! The topic is called "Structural and pragmatic peculiarities of invectives in english lyrics(notably song texts)... Yes,invectives are not "taboo", but some words and expressions sound very roughly.. And i guess, they can be sometimes classified as ""taboo".. And one of the subtopic of work is to analyse language of different subcultures...Honestly, i don`t think that this information is very necessary. But my supervisor asked me to add these information to broaden work.. Thanks!

    I see. Well that certainly makes things clearer.
    Yes, taboo words can be used in invective; but invective doesn't require them.
    I don't listen to many contemporary songs, and I wouldn't know "faf, lpb" if fell over them. Are they real?

    "faf, lpb" don`t belong to musical slang (so to say).. This expressions are common among gamers,they use them very often.. At least, i have never seen this epressions in songs.. So..i think the best way out is to talk to my supervisor=)Thanks that you responded on my question!!
