Summary/Abstract: In this essay we will discuss about how euphemisms are used to describe the reality. Knowing that euphemisms appear in different lingual structures, it is important to differentiate some of the main categories where they are used. Firstly we will analyze some of the main functions of euphemisms and after we will discuss on some lingual types, their role in the semantic change, their comparison with the discursive acts and at the end analyzing their relationship with the truth and falsity.
