the dozens对骂游戏

【使用地区】:美国黑人

【释义】:

The art of hurling invective at one’s enemies is an ancient one,and American slaves probably brought the verbal exchange now called the dozens or dirty dozens with them from Africa,basing it on the Tuareg and Galla game in which two opponents cursed one another until one man lost his temper,began fighting with his hands instead of his mouth,and was con sidered the loser.Alive and thriving today among blacks,the game takes its name not from dozen,“twelve,”but probably from the Americanism bulldoze,which meant“to bullwhip someone,”especially a slave,the insuits in the game likened to whiplashes.

气势汹汹地痛骂仇敌是一种古老的本领。黑人奴隶可能是从非洲把这个现在称之为the dozens或dirty dozens的言语交战带到了美国。该词源于图阿雷格和加拉人的游戏。游戏中,双方相互对骂,直到一方发火,停止恶骂,开始动手打人,他就被判为输家。今天这个游戏在黑人中仍十分盛行,此表达方式并非源于意为“十二”的dozen,而可能来自美国英语bulldoze,意为“用鞭抽打某人”,尤其是抽打奴隶,因为游戏中所受的侮辱与被鞭抽打没有两样。
