Taboo refers to special culture or what is abandoned in life such as thoughts and behaviors. Traditionally cultural concepts have a belief that behavior of violating the taboos would not only give rise to destruction and disturbance to the society but also cause injuries and deaths. Recently, with the rapidly speedy development of economy, China and western countries are getting more and more contacts which bring into the economic opportunity as well as the cultural conflicts. It is necessary to have a contrastive study of English and Chinese taboos, in order to reduce the unnecessary disputes.
