jekH dteuunL faiM

[วิเศษณ์] (การใช้: ปาก) ตื่นตกใจและเอะอะโวยวายเกินกว่าเหตุ.

pronunciation guide
Phonemic Thaiเจ๊ก-ตื่น-ไฟ
IPAtɕék tɯ̀ːn faj
Royal Thai General Systemchek tuen fai

 [phrase, colloquial, vulgar, idiom]
panic-stricken; panicked

notesthis phrase is offensive as it contains the derogatory word for Chinese เจ๊ก , and promulgates the negative Thai stereotype of the Chinese as obnoxious and emotional. Much like the English phrase, "A Chinaman's chance" which means "no chance," it is offensive and should not used; it is included here only for historical reference
componentsเจ๊ก jekH[an offensive term for referring to] a Chinese
ตื่น dteuunLto go to pieces; to become hysterical; to lose one's nerve
ไฟ  faiMfire; flame
