Abstract

Names are an important aspect of individual’s identity. Names are culturally, personally, and historically connected. Therefore, every individual is connected deeply with his/her name. On the contrary, in various languages there are practices of calling names which are also called as hurtful words. These unkind words are type of communicative harassment or can be called as a type of bullying or insult. Therefore, this research will concentrate upon exploring the impact of calling names in Punjabi language amongst Punjabi speakers. Population of this study is from Punjab Province, Pakistan. The sample size is of 100 participants. Data was collected through a structured questionnaire. It was revealed that Punjabi speakers in India and Pakistan disliked this notion of
calling names and calling names had a negative impact on Punjabi speakers. Surprisingly, it is also taken as a routine word in candid friends. This study has its further implications.
