牛津词典:我们决议取消最恶心英文单词票选

Oxford Dictionaries suspended its #OneWordMap most-hated words project. An update to the blog post describing the feature stated: “We regret to inform users that due to severe misuse we have had to remove this feature from our website.”

牛津字典暂停了话题#OneWordMa——最可恨单词这个项目。博客上更新道:“我们很遗憾地通知用户,由于严重滥用,我们不得不把这个功用从我们的网站上撤销。”

It’s possible that the suspension stemmed from the apparent outpouring of anti-Islam sentiment in the submissions to the project. Some Twitter accounts posted screenshots purporting to show that Oxford Dictionaries had barred certain sensitive words, like “Islam,” from submission prior to the decision to take down the project.

此次暂停有可能是源于在项目提交时对反伊斯兰心情的明显流露。一些推特账户发布的截图显示,在决议拿下这个项目之前,牛津字典已经制止提交如“Islam(伊斯兰教)”等某些敏感词汇。

However, the nature of the misuse was not specified in the site’s statement, and Oxford Dictionaries had not responded to a request for more details about why the program was halted.

但是,滥用的定义并没有在网站的声明中指定,而且牛津字典也没有回应终止原因的更多细节。

PREVIOUSLY: Do you hate the word “moist”? Well, congratulations: You’re in excellent company. The word — usually applied with varying degrees of ickiness to cake or to bodily orifices — holds a legendary power of repulsion, and a new project by Oxford Dictionaries to compile people’s most hated English-language words is confirming this.

回想:你厌恶“moist(湿润)”这个词吗?好吧,祝贺你:你和大众品味一致。这个词通常指蛋糕或身体器官上不同水平的粘度——拥有一种奇葩的厌恶感,由牛津字典的一个新项目所编辑的“人最厌恶的英语(精品课)单词”证实了这一点。

As of this writing, the website counts over 14,000 submissions, broken down by country, and “moist” hovers at or near the top of the list in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada.

在撰写本文时,网站上有超越1万4000次的提交,依据国度中止分类,在美国、英国、澳大利亚和加拿大,“湿润”这一单词徘徊或接近了榜首。
