wowser

wowser

【使用地区】:澳大利亚

【释义】:

There has been much speculation over the years about the origin of this term for a puritanical person,a bluenose,or a fanatic.The word appears to have been coined in 1890s Australia to describe fanatic prohibitionists,perhaps even from the initials of a reform organization’s slogan:“We Only Want Social Evils Righted.”

此词指“清教徒”,也称bluenose或“狂热的人”。对其词源有不少推测。也许源于19世纪90年代澳大利亚人用来指狂热的禁酒主义者,或者来自一个革新机构标语的首字母缩略语“We Only Want Social Evils Righted.”(我们只想铲除一切社会罪恶)。
