Euphemism refers to polite expressions often used indirectly in place of harsh phrases or words that may be termed as being unpleasant to talk or hear. They are mostly used in public or even formal meetings as they promote politeness. They can also be used when addressing a sensitive audience such as senior citizens or children. This not only applies to one on one conversations but also to writers who may sometimes wish to hide unpleasant words or phrases in their writing by using such idiomatic expressions. This masking of words not only hides the harshness of the words, but it also saves the writer or the speaker the embarrassment of having to deal with any kind of rudeness that may appear.
