說【林瘋 Linsanity】

突然諗起一個舊年一度相當流行嘅詞語—— Linsanity

過咗一年,仲有幾多人記得佢?仲有幾多人會用?難聽講句,有邊個記得 Jeremy Lin 係乜水?

好彩 Google Trends 有答案……

linsanity

2012年二、三月時爆紅嘅詞語,到五、六月已經無乜人提;今年新聞更寥寥可數……

當日有詞典出版商話要將個詞收入詞典,不過一年之後仲有邊個會用?過多五年仲有邊個記得?

所以話 One-hit wonder 就算幾大爆炸力都好,唔能夠持續落去一樣無用……幾多個新字造出嚟都好,正如 Oxford Dictionaries Blog 話齋:

how likely is it that any of these Lin- words will survive?

Quite unlikely.

有幾大可能嗰啲林字頭嘅字會繼續存在?

都冇乜可能。
