    How to use "Invective" in context?

    Invective, vulgarity, and foul language are barbs and arrows of verbal warfare. They are the sharpest words in the armory of language, the means of wounding, weakening, and damaging an opponent.

    The use of invective in everyday life is often motivated by competitive urge or a need to communicate effectively. The purpose of invective is to hurt, humiliate, and even provoke.

    The use of foul language is frowned upon by many people, but it is an essential tool in the language arsenal of many Tongans and Samoans.
