(考背)

Etymology[edit]

The Mandarin pronunciation of these two characters approximates the sound of Min Nan 哭爸 (khàu-pē, literally to mourn the death of one's father). The phrase is also a crude way to curse someone (i.e. to hope that a person is placed in the position of having to mourn the loss of a parent).

Pronunciation[edit]


Interjection[edit]

  1. (Taiwanese Mandarin) May your parents rot!
