手机和现代人的生活越来越紧密,最近,很多语言中都衍生出了和手机文化有关的词语,比如,中文里的“低头族”指的是边走路边看手机的人,这类人在德国被称作“手机僵尸 smombies”。跟随本集《随身英语》,了解和智能手机文化有关的知识。

课文内容Vocabulary: modern culture 词汇:现代文化Are you addicted to your smartphone? Do you check your phabletin the middle of the night? Do youpostto social media as you stroll along the pavement?

If you do the latter, you would be called a ‘smombie’ in Germany. It’s aportmanteauword which combines ‘smartphone’ and ‘zombie’, and refers to the familiar sight of someonepotteringalong, eyesgluedtothe phone in their hand,obliviousto the world around them. The term was chosen as Youth Word of the Year in Germany in 2015.

Indeed, just as mobile phones have changed the way we communicate, they’ve also enrichedthe stock of slang that describes human behaviour.

Another such term is ‘phubbing’. Again, it’s a combination of two individual words, this time ‘phone’ and ‘snubbing’. Picture the scene: you’re out at a cafe with a friend, but instead of listening to yourscintillatingconversation, he’sengrossedin his mobile phone.We’ve all been there.

Then there’s a phrase which comes from Chinese: the ‘bowedhead tribe’. This describes not a mere, singular smombie, but thelegionsofpeople we see stooped over mobile phones.

And over in Japan, one blogger describes the groups of people dangerously traversing busy intersections as ‘dumbwalkers’, but who somehow manage to avoid crashing into each other.

While many of these terms are light-hearted, there’s a serious side. In the German city of Augsburg one phone user was killed after being hit by a tram as she crossed the road. It prompted authorities to install ground-level traffic lights for those looking down at their phones.

And the risks with phones don’t end there. The desire for increasingly daring selfies has led to the deaths of over 120 people since 2014. That’s more than have died from shark attacks.

It may come as no surprise to hear, therefore, that we’re more addicted to our phones than ever before, according to a survey in the UK by Deloitte. Phones are our cameras, our calendars and our windows into the constantly updatinglives of friends across social media.

Without our phones by our side, surely we’d miss outon all this fun? And yes, you guessed it, there’s a slang term for thatmentalitytoo: ‘fomo’, or the ‘fear of missing out’.
