  Vulgarism \Vul"gar*ism\, n. [Cf. F. vulgarisme.]
     [1913 Webster]
     1. Grossness; rudeness; vulgarity.
        [1913 Webster]
     2. A vulgar phrase or expression.
        [1913 Webster]
              A fastidious taste will find offense in the
              occasional vulgarisms, or what we now call "slang,"
              which not a few of our writers seem to have
              affected.                             --Coleridge.
        [1913 Webster]
