Spitting or expectoration is the act of forcibly ejecting saliva or other substances from the mouth. It is usually considered rude and a social taboo in many parts of the world. It is possible to transmit infectious diseases in this way.

Spitting upon another person, especially onto the face, is a universal sign of anger, hatred or contempt. It can represent a "symbolical regurgitation" or an act of contamination. It can also be a device to bring good luck or ward off bad.[१]

The term spitting is also used to describe a type of soft rain, or the act of reciting premade lyrics (also known as "bars") by a rapper. This usage is colloquial and mainly used in the genres of rap, grime and hip hop.साचा:Fact

It may be preceded by hawking, forcing up phlegm from the upper respiratory tract, giving the ejected gob a more slimy consistency.

History of spitting in Western Europe पश्चिम यूरोपातील थुंकण्याचा इतिहास[संपादन]

Social attitudes towards spitting have changed greatly in Western Europe since the Middle Ages. Then, frequent spitting was part of everyday life, and at all levels of society, it was thought ill-mannered to suck back saliva to avoid spitting. By the early 1700s, spitting had become seen as something which should be concealed, and by 1859 many viewed the spitting on the floor or street as vulgar, especially in mixed company. Spittoons were used openly during the nineteenth century to provide an acceptable outlet for spitters. Spittoons became far less common after the influenza epidemic of 1918, and their use has since virtually disappeared, though each justice of the Supreme Court of the United States continues to be provided with a personal cuspidor.[१]
