In Other Words: Slaughterhouse
Discuss this euphemism in the comments below.
Who on earth defined this as a euphemism? Abattoir is French. In fact it is the current word for slaughterhouse in French to this day. It may sound softer to you because you don’t know what it means, but it is a highly charged word for anyone who speaks French.
