解釋 #1
讀音: heoi3 jim4 lo4 wong4 syu3 bou3 dou3
詞性: 語句
標籤: 俚語 舊式
解釋:
(廣東話) 死亡嘅婉辭,華夏文化入邊相傳人死咗之後會落地府受審,而閻羅王就係嗰個判官,去閻羅王嗰度報到即係死咗咁解。
(英文) a euphemism for death; literally: to go to where Yama King is and check in. In Chinese mythology, souls of the dead would be judged in the underworld by an entity called as 'Yama King' and to check in at his place by extension implies death.
例句:
(粵) 佢頭先過馬路唔睇車,爭啲要去閻羅王處報到。 (keoi5 tau4 sin1 gwo3 maa5 lou6 m4 tai2 ce1, zaang1 di1 jiu3 heoi3 jim4 lo4 wong4 syu3 bou3 dou3.)
(英) He hasn't paid attention to the traffic just now, and almost went to check in at Yama king's court.
