【英语词汇】牛津在线词典
阅读次数:91    发布时间:2014-07-21

The latest quarterly update to Oxford Dictionaries sees a wide range of words, definitions, and senses added to the dictionary. Here is a selection of some of the new words and senses from this quarter’s update:

牛津在线词典最新季度的更新收录了涵盖各个方面的单词、定义和含义。下面选取了一些本季度的新词新义:

ship

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ship的人会自称shipper——这个单词也同样在这次更新中入驻了牛津在线词典。


Support for one of these relationships is described with the verb ship – for example, 'I will always ship Sherlock and Molly'.
Ship作动词时可以表达对某种感情的支持,比如:“我会永远ship夏洛克和茉莉。”(英剧《神探夏洛克》中的台词)

thing



Thing is far from a new word, but a new sense has developed over recent years.
thing并不是一个新词,只是近年来这个词又被赋予了新义。



Describing something as a thing is now used informally to indicate that something is an established or genuine phenomenon or practice – often registering surprise or incredulity.
现在用thing来描述某事物,是用来表示这种现象或行为是确定的、真实存在的,是一种非正式的说法——通常用于表达惊奇或是不可思议的事物。



For example: 'he looks like he's wearing boxers underneath his trunks (is that a thing?).

比如:“他看起来好像在泳裤下面还穿了平角裤——真的是这样吗(is that a thing)?”
