Open peer commentary on the article “Euphemisms vs. Dysphemisms, or How we Construct Good and Bad Language” by Andrey S. Druzhinin. Abstract: The concepts of euphemism and dysphemism are based on the very common distinction between “good” and “evil,” of which Druzhinin does not attempt any analysis. A rough analysis is easy for some parts, but it also faces the immense problem of phenomenal consciousness or qualia, in front of which even constructivism (like any other approach) is powerless. However, constructivism allows us to frame the problem of qualia better than other approaches.
