这篇翻译了好久,差点没翻译吐了……那些单词到底要不要翻译有点拿不准,所以能翻译的就都翻译了,例句里也都括号出了原词。

以防点评君觉得太长看了犯困,根据原文加了点音乐……

牛津在线词典最新季度的更新收入了涵盖各个方面的单词、定义和含义。这些单词来源的领域由单车运动(bikeable)至金融商贸(cryptocurrency),从食品(white pizza)到网络用语(a very new type of ship)。 

 

Here is a selection of some of the new words and senses from this quarter’s update: 

下面选取了一些本季度的新词新义


I will go down with this ship     


“我愿随着这船(段关系)(ship)沉沦”(Dido的 White Flag 歌词)




The world of slang, and particularly internet slang, continues to be a fruitful area for new words and senses. One of the more versatile to have entered Oxford Dictionaries Online this quarter is the noun and verb ship. 

 

世界上的俚语,尤其是网络用语,一直是滋生新词新义的肥沃土壤。这一季度,作为更为常用的网络用语之一,可作名词可作动词的ship被加进了牛津在线词典的词条。


ship  

西皮 

 

Ship was originally an abbreviation of relationship, and refers to a romantic relationship between two characters in a fictional series – often one that is supported by fans rather than depicted in the series itself.  

 

Ship起初是单词relationship(关系)的缩写,用来指电视剧中两个虚构角色之间的恋情——而且通常是粉丝们所支持的,而不是剧集本身所描写的那对。 

 

You might find these relationships portrayed in fan fiction or online discussion; those who have a particular interest in a particular ship are known as shippers, which is another word entering Oxford Dictionaries Online in this update.  

 

这类恋情往往是通过粉丝写的同人小说或者网络讨论描绘出来的。那些粉某一特定西皮(ship)的人会自称shipper——这个单词也同样在这次更新中被加进了牛津在线词典。 

 

Support for one of these relationships is described with the verb ship – for example, 'I will always ship Sherlock and Molly'. 

 

要表达对某一恋情的支持,通常用ship的动词形式,比如:“我会永远ship夏洛克和茉莉。”(英剧《神探夏洛克》中的男女角色)
