“Just before the time the last King sentenced to death by his own people, will be beheaded, he knows a little girl two foreign figurines in hands to play.
In both of these figurines is a special power:
In one the yeast, to better rule,
In the other the grace, to better distribute.
They are wild times: happiness is scarce and life is a lottery … “
Doerak is a loan word from Russian; doerak (дурак) means in that language, silly ‘ dunce ‘. In English meant doerak initially, despicable ‘ common man ‘, but later, with the advent of watered-down meaning ‘ Vice ‘, bengel (according to Van Dale (2005) is this meaning even “conveniently”).
According to the Etymological Dictionary of the English (EWN), the Dutch the Russian word presumably inherited from the Cossacks, who in 1813 and 1814 Netherlands helped the troops of Napoleon to oust.
Moreover, according to the EWN pas in 1879 for the first time in writing.
The EWN reports that further similar Malay word kent: durhaka, that ‘ rebellious ‘ or ‘ insurrectionist ‘ means.
However, it is not obvious that our word doerak from there comes, as is sometimes suggested, because this word also appears in languages which don’t have contact with the Malay. (I)
