原標題:十個單詞看透你是學渣還是學霸!!

A poll of its members found 10 words that Britons consistently find the most challenging to pronounce.

在一個投票里,英國人選出10個他們認為發音最有挑戰性的單詞。

The word we find hardest to pronounce is ‘phenomenon’.

最難發音的單詞是“phenomenon(現象)”。

Next in the top 10 of tongue-twisters are ‘remuneration’, and‘statistics’.

在十大饒舌單詞里,緊跟著的是“remuneration(酬金)”和“statistics(統計)”。

Speakers also have a problem getting their tongue around ethnicity, hereditary and particularly, according to the body charged with recording public utterances.

根據公共話語有關人體發音的記錄,說話者在說“ethnicity(種族地位)”“hereditary(遺傳的)”“particularly(特別地)”這幾個詞時都有舌頭很難轉動的問題。

Completing the list are conjugal, specific, processes and development.

列表余下的單詞有“conjugal(婚姻的)”“specific(特殊的)”“processes(過程)”“development(發展)”。

Leah Willersdorf, of the BIVR, said: ‘We work with many different types of professionals and hear all kinds of voices during our work.’‘However, when it comes to the English language it always seems tobe the same few words that verbally trip people up, with the speaker having to repeat the word in order to get it right, or just abandoning their attempts and moving on.’

英國某研究所專家表示“我們跟很多不同專業的人合作,聽過多種聲音。”“然而,當我們研究英語時,我們發現總有幾個單詞人們發音時都會被它們絆倒,說話者要重復該單詞以糾正發音,又或者直接不說這些單詞,繼續他們的話題。”

The poll of tongue twisters was in response to a query by the makers of Scrabble who say one in ten players are reluctant to usewords they cannot pronounce.

University of York sociolinguistics expert Professor Paul Kers will said the English language has evolved to compensate for tricky pronunciations but some words remain a challenge.

He said: ‘People always find a way of simplifying words that they find difficult to get their tongues round, so that an everyday wordlike ‘handbag’ sounds like ‘hambag’.

‘Our forebears simplified ‘waistcoat’ to ‘weskit’ – but we’veturned our backs on that.

饒舌單詞投票是由拼字游戲(Scrabble)制作者編制的,他說,十分之一玩家如果覺得這個單詞難發音,他們就不愿意使用。

約克大學社會語言學專家表示,英語已經進化了一些聽起來很可笑的發音的單詞,但是有些單詞仍然是一個挑戰。

他說:“人們總會發現一些很常用的單詞很難轉動舌頭來發音,就比如我們日常的詞‘handbag(手袋)’,聽起來就像‘hambag’。”

“我們的祖先簡化了‘waistcoat(馬甲、背心)’成為‘weskit’,但我們卻對此呲之以鼻。”
