It is human nature to express one's emotions out loud. To this end, many swear words and expressions have been created and interpreted in all languages of the world. The Tatars were no exception and came up with their own, unique Tatar curses.
Fancy "infidel" expressions
The etymology of obscene words goes far into the past. What is considered obscene and condemned today was once used in pagan rites. The designation of male and female genital organs had a sacred meaning, personified fertility, and therefore the prosperity of all things. Over time, these words changed their function and began to be used as basic curses with many forms and declensions.
Tatar swear words are closely related to Russian profanity. The main words here are also the names of the reproductive organs. There is an opinion that the Russian language is rich in obscene language. Tatar is not left behind. In his arsenal there is a huge number of words and speechturns, which form original curses in the Tatar language.
How exactly does obscene language sound in Tatar? This list is varied, but among them are the most popular curses in the Tatar language with translation. Most of them are rude and obscene, so their Russian counterparts will be given in a slightly lighter version.

A close intertwining of two languages
Russian and Tatar languages have always closely coexisted with each other and borrowed words from each other. In the twentieth century,some linguists even formed the opinion that Tatar curses (or rather, Tatar-Mongolian) became a source for Russian obscene language. Today, many experts recognize this version as erroneous, since the Russian mat has pronounced Slavic roots. However, the Russian language nevertheless borrowed some expressions, for example, such a common expression as “ekar babai”. Other Tatar swear words with translations from the list above are used only by native speakers.
Swearing Tatar in Russia
The Republic of Tatarstan is part of the Russian Federation, and the Tatars have long begun to consider themselves true Russians. Most of the population of the region speaks and swears in Russian. Some native Tatars mix two languages in everyday life, aptly diluting their speech with biting Russian obscenities. Purely Tatar is spoken and cursed only in small villages, whose inhabitants do not speak Russian well or do not know it at all, for example, some elderly people.
Despite their dubious popularity, Tatar curses remain part of the national language, giving it a peculiar flavor and distinguishing it from many other languages spoken on the territory of a vast country.
