It is generally said that euphemisms, as a mitigating device, replace taboo words or dysphemisms. However, in the journalistic register we see that the euphemistic word does not necessarily ban the taboo word, since they can appear next to each other and they are possibly interchangeable on the syntagmatic axis. Since the two forms are somehow divergent, one may ask oneself whether they can be considered synonyms and whether they counteract each other, block each other in discourse, or if they maintain their high and low force.
