Whatever”连续三年当选最讨厌词汇

来源:中华考试网发布时间:2011-12-26

    美国圣母学院公众舆论研究所的一项年度调查结果显示,“随便”(Whatever)一词连续三年被选为年度最让美国人讨厌的词汇。近40%的受调查民众认为,“随便”(Whatever)是日常谈话中最惹人烦的敷衍之语。如果你想尽快结束一场谈话,可以试试说“随便”(Whatever)。另外,五分之一的民众认为,“你懂的”(You Know)和“比如”(Like)也很讨人嫌。调查还显示,尽管“随便说说”(Just sayin)和“说真的” (Seriously)这两种表达让人听了也很窝火,但至少还可以接受。圣母学院在全国范围内对1026人进行了电话调查,这是该学院第三年举行此类民意调查。

    Do you want to kill a conversation? Try saying "whatever."

    Words like "you know" and "like" might be irritating to hear, but for the third year in a row, it's "whatever" that holds the most power to annoy, according to an annual survey by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.

    Nearly four in 10 adults named "whatever" as the most annoying verbal filler in casual conversation, while one in five adults had similar disdain for "like" and 'you know."

    "Just sayin'" and "seriously" were more forgiving to the ears, though still quite irritating, Marist found.

    The telephone survey of 1,026 adults nationally had a margin of error of three percentage points.
