Slang and swearing are commonly used within the scope of oral culture and in this text, it will be discussed, taking into consideration the various definitions and contexts of slang and swearing, what kind of a function these two practices fulfill in the movie entitled G.O.R.A, precisely in an era that is defined by Walter J. Ong as "secondary orality". It appears, after regarding the use of slang and swearing in the movie in the light of certain theories concerning the use of humour, that the use of those two devices in question carry out a humoristic function in a way that differs from that of their general context, in that these practices no longer connotate negative meanings.
