The Angus Reid Public Opinion poll of 1,012 Canadians, 1,013 U.S. residents and 1,992 Britons, conducted online July 20-23, found 56 percent of Canadian respondents admitted to using profanity on a regular or occasional basis while talking to friends, compared with 51 percent in Britain and 46 percent in the United States.

The survey also found 27 percent of Canadians and Britons polled hear their friends swear frequently on a daily basis, while 26 percent of those in the United States said the same.

However, 21 percent of U.S. adults polled said their relatives frequently use swear words, more than the 17 percent of Canadians and 13 percent of Britons.

About one-third of all respondents -- 37 percent of Britons, 35 percent of U.S. residents and 34 percent of Canadians -- said they can censor themselves to ensure they do not swear in a public setting.

The poll had an error margin of 3.1 percentage points in the United States and Canada and 2.2 points in Britain.
