what's the difference "fool", "jerk", "moron", "bastard", "asshole","idiot"
It's just a question of degree- moron is strnger than fool. I wouldn't classify any of these wrods as taboo,but in the UK, we seem to be fairly relxaxed about words like 'bastard' (famously used by a Prime Minister about his colleagues). However, if I understand it, 'asshole'in American English is not as stroong as the British form 'arsehole', which is meant to show contempt for someone here.
