To be done an eccehomo

Val. «Estar fet un eccehomo»

Es diu que algú està fet un eccehomo quan està malferit. L’origen d’esta expressió cal buscar-lo en la frase Ecce homo, que en llatí significa «Heus ací l’home»; va ser la frase que va dir Ponç Pilat per a presentar a Jesús després de ser flagel·lat i coronat amb espines.
En valencià eccehomo es pronuncia popularment aixòmo o axiamo.


In Valencian, to be like an eccehomo means to be badly injured. Ecce homo is a Latin sentence meaning ‘Behold the Man’. These were Pilate’s words as he presented Jesus, crowned with thorns, to the crowd.

This sentence is very interesting as it must arise from ancient times and nowadays people don't even know the meaning of "ecce homo". I remember well how a friend of mine from Llíria told me this sentence when somebody was ragged or just physically spoiled. Dictionaries account for the Valencian pronuntiation /ekseɔ́mo/, though like Armando, I've heard many other deteriorated alternatives.

Aquesta frase és molt interessant atés que deu de ser de temps remots i hui dia la gent no sap el significat de "ecce homo".Recorde molt bé com una amiga de Llíria deia aquesta frase quan algú duia la roba esquinçada o simplement estava físicament deteriorat. Els diccionaris tenen la pronúncia valenciana /ekseɔ́mo/ tot i que, com Armando n'he sentit d'altres més deteriorades.

Enhorabona, crac!!
