近日,《剑桥词典》(Cambridge Dictionary)公布了2022年度词汇:Homer(本垒打)。Homer是棒球运动中的术语,指击球员将对方来球击出后,击球员依次跑过一、二、三垒并安全回到本垒。Homer实际上是非正式的美式英语单词,这样一个专业词汇为什么能成为今年的年度词汇呢?这就要从海外非常火的一款猜词游戏Wordle说起了。
 
The endless permutations of five-letter words took over the internet in 2022 as the online puzzle game Wordle dominated social media feeds, pop culture and even determined1 the Cambridge Dictionary's word of the year.
2022年,在线益智游戏Wordle在社交媒体刷屏,五个字母的无限排列组合走红网络,甚至决定了《剑桥词典》的2022年度词汇。
 
"Homer" was looked up on the Cambridge Dictionary website more than 79,000 times this year, with 65,401 searches taking place in one day – May 5.
今年,Homer(本垒打)在剑桥词典网站的搜索次数超过79000次,在5月5日这一天内被搜索65401次。
 
The reason? That was the day it was the Wordle answer, provoking frustration2 from non-American users unfamiliar3 with the term as they attempted to secure a win by guessing the word within the game's six-guess limit.
这是为什么呢?因为Wordle那天的答案是Homer,这可难倒了不熟悉这个单词的非美国用户,因为玩家只有6次猜词机会。
