为什么"去荷兰"?

当马华总会长蔡细历说,马华若不思振作长进收复政治山河,来届大选将会"去荷兰"。而行动党雪州州议长邓章钦语带嘲讽说,马华要去荷兰自己去。相信这两人对"去荷兰"的意思是知其然而不知所以然,对这本土的俚语只能迷糊意会,不知就里。

英文中确有"Go Dutch!"( 去荷兰) 这用语, 这话有点贬损荷兰人, 因为荷兰男女约会吃一顿, 主张平分帐单,无论做什么都会同对方计较得清清楚楚而略嫌抠门,英国人对荷兰人有偏见,认为缺乏绅士风度。为了照顾荷兰人的脸面,Go Dutch后来引申为受到推崇"AA( Algebraic Average代数平均),这与蔡细历口中的"去荷兰"的意思是毫无关连的。

"去荷兰"是民间俚语。俚语就是百姓在日常生活中总结出来的通俗易懂顺口的具有地方色彩的词语。它的地域性强,通行面极窄,却较生活化。俚语多出自价值观念上的冲突,表示敌意或轻蔑;也可出自对某些事物的讪笑。它是非习惯用语,用以表达新鲜事物,或对旧事物赋以新的说法,最主要的来源是职业罪犯的用语。

"去荷兰"於上个世纪70年代常在市井小民成为口头禅。在那时期,大马的贩运毒品活动活跃,犯罪集团诱使年青人"去荷兰"游玩,条件是挟带藏着海洛英到荷兰从中赚取暴利,不少人因此失手身陷牢狱。因此,有此一说是替某人打开门道,但悲惨后果由愿者上钩,"去荷兰"意味着前途凶险没有回头路。

那时期,荷兰华人黑帮与大马黑社会交往频密,卖淫集团穿针引线,把本地捞女送往荷兰唐人街从事性交易,有的女孩子受到欺凌而无法摆脱魔掌,因此,"去荷兰"这个举世闻名的红灯区淘金,最终成为恶梦。

在更早时期,荷兰唐人街缺乏劳工,有些人在甜言蜜语下而远赴荷兰,以为到外国跳飞机谋生,实则是被卖猪仔,一趟"去荷兰"就成为一生难忘的教训。

70年代,去荷兰的含意非常丰富,一个罪犯被警方逮捕,一个人死掉,都可以说成"去荷兰"。马场卜基集团向骑师或练马师索取赢马贴士如果不准而输钱,他们就会以被带去荷兰这藉口向骑师和练马师兴师问罪。因此,"去荷兰"的意思涵盖面广泛,其负面的影响有轻重区别,它可解作受到忽悠诈骗、被人陷害、身系困境、穷途末路、一厥不振、运气不济、计划受到挫败、消息失准等等,胥视话题的内容而定。

以蔡细历的马华去荷兰而论,蔡细历的哀兵悲号是要激励党员的团结一致雄起问政,否则就"去荷兰",意思是走向绝灭之途。而邓章钦应声回敬要去荷兰自己去,则可视为恶毒的诅咒,要死自已去死。当然,政治人物尽管口若悬河,他们对"去荷兰"只是凭片面理解而耍嘴皮,不必吹毛求疵。

#1Anonymous说得很正确。

去荷兰 full statement should be 去荷兰kan - meaning in Hokian - ki ho lang kan - 去给人“干”!
那是槟城六七年代时“发明”的口头溜,朋友之间在聚会时常用来互相调侃。后来变得简短为“去荷兰”是因为有女友或太太在场而不好意思再用kan字啦!
“它”其实是续“chiou ee”笑他/她后而来的。

去香港玩“Ki hong (lang) kang ti tho”则是八十年代的玩意儿咯!

哎唷,你看,以前淳朴的岛民!?

老爹说得也很正确,我是吉打人也知到原文,好听点是去“荷兰”,难听的就要加上“干”了。
