2015年度热词

We've all done it, so it's no wonder 'binge-watch' has been named the Word of the Year for 2015.

谁没开启过连续看片模式呢,所以“binge-watch(连续看片)”被评为2015年度热词也没什么奇怪的。

Dictionary compilers have seen a 200% increase in its usage as a survey found 92% of us admitted to "binge-watching" - viewing more than three episodes of a series in one day - according to digital video recording1 company Tivo.

This fits in with the CollinsDictionary.com definition: "To watch a large number of television programmes (especially all the shows from one series) in succession."

Other words that Collins says have been significant in 2015 include clean eating, dadbod and Corbynomics.

A diet of "clean eating" refers to one which avoids processed foods and is heavy in raw and unrefined produce.

Male binge-watchers who do not watch their diet are in danger of developing a "dadbod" - a plump physique.

Anyone with a 'dadbod' seen 'manspreading' - sitting on public transport with legs widely spread - is in danger of being shamed.

"Shaming", often linked to body image issues on social media, has seen usage increase substantially since 2014.

Contemporary dating habits are also apparent in words noted2 by Collins this year, as a Tinder user may "swipe" someone attractive, but if it does not work out they may break off a relationship by "ghosting" their unfortunate partner.

"Transgender" has also made it on to the list, with the increased exposure of public figures such as Caitlyn Jenner contributing to a doubling of the word's usage.
