摇滚音乐手势Corna

2006-07-13 10:36Wikipedia

CornaThe corna (Italian for horns, also mano cornuta, horned hand) is a gesture with a vulgar meaning in Mediterranean countries. Its origins can be traced to Ancient Greece. It is realized by stretching the index and little fingers while holding the middle and ring fingers down with the thumb.

Corna(意大利语中的“角”一词,也写作mano cornuta或是horned hand)原是一种在地中海沿岸国家的居民用的一种下流的手势。其起源可追溯至古希腊时期。此手势将食指与小指伸直,与此同时要用拇指压住弯下的中指和无名指。

The same gesture is used for warding off bad luck or the evil eye. It is also used as a reference to Satan and Satanism, at least since the 1960s, and has a variety of meanings in heavy metal, where it is also known as devil horns, goat horns, rock horns, throwing the goat, evil fingers, Pommesgabel, mano cornuto, peka evil or just the horns.There is a theory that states that Corna is the antagonist of the Sign of the Cross- where three fingers brought to a point symbolize the Holy Trinity. Opposite of the Holy Trinity is the Unholy Trinity: Satan, Antichrist and the False Prophet, represented by the three fingers of the Corna.

这一手势被用来驱逐坏运气或是邪恶的眼睛。自1960年代以后,这一手势也被用来代表魔鬼撒旦和撒旦主义,并在重金属音乐中表示多种含义,这一手势也被叫作“魔鬼之角”、“山羊之角”、“摇滚之角”、“甩出山羊”、“邪恶手指”或直接称为“角”等等。有一种理论声称Corna(角)这种手势与十字架手势相对——三指拢成一点代表圣灵三位一体。

The same gesture is known as Rock on in some U.S. rock music subcultures, and Hook 'em Horns when used by supporters of The University of Texas or its sports teams. In that context, it is used to approximate the shape of the horns of a Texas longhorn steer. Neither use is considered vulgar or Satanistic.

同样的手势在美国的一些摇滚音乐亚文化中也被称作“继续摇滚”手势,德克萨斯大学运动队的啦啦队用这一手势为队员加油。此两种用法与下流或是撒旦都无关。

The corna is not to be confused as the sign for "I love you" in American Sign Language, which is made by also extending the thumb, or the shaka sign used in Hawaii, which is made by extending just the thumb and little finger.

注意不要将“角”这一手势与美国“我爱你”的手势相混淆,“我爱你”的手势要求将拇指同时打开。

With the advent of e-mail and other forms of electronic text-based communications; the backslash, lower case "m", and forward slash characters are used as a representation: \m/

随着e-mail的到来和其他基于电子文本的通讯方式的普及;通过字母m和前后斜线相组合的符号\m/被用来代表这一手势。
