释义

名词

指乘客,普遍用于东南亚一带。

DEFINITION

Noun

A term commonly used in Southeast Asia to refer to a passenger or passengers.

由来
  • 搭客一词,据说源自福建话(闽南话)tah kheh 和广东话(广州话、粤语)daap haak
  • 在中国大陆,“搭客”通常指的是车辆或船只趁便载客,较少指乘客,但一般认为新加坡使用“搭客”的频率比“乘客”高。
  • ETYMOLOGY
    • The term “搭客” is said to have originated from tah kheh in the Hokkien (Minnan) dialect and daap haak in Cantonese. 

    • In Mainland China, the term is rarely used to refer to passengers. Rather, it usually refers to the action of vehicles or boats allowing people to hitch a ride. In general, the term “搭客” is thought to be used more frequently than “乘客” in Singapore.

    例句
    曾先生说,随着手机应用越来越普及化,很多搭客都是选择电召德士,而不会在路边等。他估计,目前有多达70%工作都是电召。(《新明日报》,16/11/2018)
    SAMPLE SENTENCE
