WHAT DOES BASTINADO MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Foot whipping

Foot whipping or bastinado is a form of corporal punishment in which the soles of a person's bare feet are repetitively beaten with an implement. It is also referred to as foot/feet caning, sole caning, sole beating or foot bottom caning. The particular Mid East method is called falaka, also spelled falaqa, falanga or phalanga, derivative from the Greek term falange. The common German term is Bastonade, in former times Sohlenstreich. Still it is mostly paraphrased with "fünfzig" auf die Fußsohlen in colloquial German speech, literally translated by "fifty" onto the soles of the feet. In China it is referred to as jiao xing. The first documentation of bastinado in European civilizations dates back to the year 1537, in China to 960. It is referenced in the bible in multiple passages, indicating that it has been practiced since ancient times. Foot whipping is mostly associated with middle and far eastern civilizations, where it is occasionally executed in public and covered by reports and photographs.
