What is the meaning of "filthy language"?

What was meant by filthy language when Paul wrote this? Is understanding context taken from Paul's day or from the translators' understanding of its current meaning?

Colossians 3:8

NKJV - 8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.
