今天,要来给大家普及一下在英语世界,年轻人中非常流行的slang(俚语)。


1. 学习一门语言,一定要学习当下的slang 。为什么呢?


(1) Communication(交流):


Slang is often used in casual conversation(一般在非正式场合会大量使用)。


如果你are not familiar with the slang they are using(不熟悉他们使用的俚语),那么it can be difficult to fully understand what someone is saying(可能很难完全理解他们在说什么)。


(2) Culture (文化):


Slang代表了一个文化中,当下的一种pop culture (流行文化)。


Slang is often used in popular culture, such as in music lyrics or movies.


俚语在流行文化中经常被使用,听歌、看电影都会碰到。


(3) Inclusion(文化包容):


你懂了他们说的俚语,那么it can help you feel more included and connected to others who share that culture or identity(它可以让你感觉更被这个文化包容,和这种文化里的人的联系更紧密)。


2. What is slang?什么是俚语?


l Slang refers to informal language that is typically used by a particular group of people or subculture. 通常是由特定群体或亚文化使用的非正式语言。


l It often consists of words or phrases that are not recognized as standard language它通常由不标准的单词或短语组成。


l It may have different meanings than their literal definitions.它可能有不同于字面意思的含义。


汉语中也有slang,比如狗血、老铁、套路、靠谱、666、吃瓜群众……


当你能够熟练地应用这些俚语的时候,对方才会觉得,“哇,你是自己人。我说什么你都会听懂。”


3. Gen-Z指什么?


Gen Z generally refers to individuals who were born between the mid-1990s and the mid-2010s


西方95后到2010年间出生的人,被称作Gen Z。


西方社会,对这一批年轻孩子,有固定的stereotype(标签),比如:


• Mobile dependency 移动依赖:这一代人常用手机


• Social media addiction 社交媒体成瘾:常使社交媒体,如 Instagram、TikTok、Snapchat等


• Short attention span注意力短暂:短平快的模式,让这一代人更难以保持注意力


• Support for social justice支持社会正义:这一代人可能更关注社会问题,如气候变化、种族平等、性别平等等


• Advocacy for self-expression倡导自我表达:这一代人强调自由、开放、自我表达和多样性


总之,Gen-Z非常有个性。
