ABSTRACT
The author offers his insights on the effects of shibboleths to social perceptions. He states that a shibboleth could be defined as a code-word or a word that has been accepted as truth because of its repeated use. Shibboleths can be employed mindlessly with no actual harm intended or intentionally with malicious or detrimental intents. Repeating words referring to two social realities to mean one thing either mindlessly or intentionally often lead to a new accepted social reality.
