  • There's a lovely book called English as a Second F*cking Language that I highly recommend, here. That might help.

    I see it also has a companion, here.

  • Int'restin'. Rules governin' the use of f***in' asterisks in words must exist somewhere, though possibly inside various censors' heads.

    Edit: here's a usage example.

  • A word that uses an apostrophe correctly is a contraction or a possessive (or a plural of number or letter), not a capostrophe. As far as I know, there are no rules governing the use of asterisks in words, so all instances qualify as asterical.

  • Ah, but then we end up with one rule for capostrophe and another for asterical (see the discussion there).
