The most controversial word in the English language--the word that still can't be used on network TV or in our major newspapers--is displayed here in its endless variety (17 senses as a noun, 28 senses as a verb, not to mention innumerable phrases, compounds, and derived forms), supported by colorful citations dating back to the word's earliest appearance in the language in the 15th century.
