I checked before replying. I could find no reference to their being nouns.
Curses are first introduced in the original section 5.5 as exclamations.
However, only three words that are really invectives, not epithets, are
Then, in the addendum section 5.5, it introduces the categories of
epithets and general invectives. These are still labeled as exclamations.
However, none of the curse words appear in the word lists, so we never
see any of them individually given an explicit label.
So it's reasonable to conclude that TKD considers all curse words as
exclamations. However, this is clearly inaccurate, as the epithets
appear to be nouns.
