WHAT DOES CANING MEAN IN ENGLISH?

caning

Caning

Caning is a form of corporal punishment consisting of a number of hits with a single cane usually made of rattan, generally applied to the offender's bare or clothed buttocks or hand. Application of a cane to the knuckles or the shoulders has been much less common. Caning can also be applied to the soles of the feet. The size and flexibility of the cane and the mode of application, as well as the number of the strokes, vary greatly—from a couple of light strokes with a small cane across the seat of a junior schoolboy's trousers, to 24 very hard, wounding cuts on the bare buttocks with a large, heavy, soaked rattan as a judicial punishment in south-east Asia. The thin cane generally used for corporal punishment is not to be confused with a walking stick, sometimes also called a "cane" but which is thicker and much more rigid, and more likely to be made of stronger wood than of cane.
