 Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year 2015 is…

笑cry!2015牛津年度词汇居然
 
年末到,各种年度大盘点也揭开了序幕!
 
2015《牛津词典》年度热词日前新鲜出炉,这一次公布的热词并非文字,而是emoji表情符号“Face with Tears of Joy”;官方解释为:喜极而泣的脸,即“笑Cry”。
 
2013年8月,牛津词典正式收录“emoji”这个词汇,如今emoji中的一个图片被收录为热词,可以说是史无前例。
 
而这个尽在不言中的表情逆袭夺冠,小伙伴们“笑cry”了么?
 
That’s right – for the first time ever, the Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year is a pictograph:  officially called the ‘Face with Tears of Joy’ emoji, though you may know it by other names. There were other strong contenders from a range of fields, outlined below, but was chosen as the ‘word’ that best reflected the ethos, mood, and preoccupations of 2015.
 
Why was this chosen?【上榜理由】
Emojis (the plural can be either emoji or emojis) have been around since the late 1990s, but 2015 saw their use, and use of the word emoji, increase hugely.
 

 
This year Oxford University Press have partnered with leading mobile technology business SwiftKey to explore frequency and usage statistics for some of the most popular emoji across the world, and was chosen because it was the most used emoji globally in 2015. SwiftKey identified that made up 20% of all the emojis used in the UK in 2015, and 17% of those in the US: a sharp rise from 4% and 9% respectively in 2014. The word emoji has seen a similar surge: although it has been found in English since 1997, usage more than tripled in 2015 over the previous year according to data from the Oxford Dictionaries Corpus.

A brief history of emoji 【emoji简史】
An emoji is ‘a small digital image or icon used to express an idea or emotion in electronic communication’; the term emoji is a loanword from Japanese, and comes from e ‘picture’ + moji ‘letter, character’. The similarity to the English word emoticon has helped its memorability and rise in use, though the resemblance is actually entirely coincidental: emoticon (a facial expression composed of keyboard characters, such as ;), rather than a stylized image) comes from the English words emotion and icon.
 
Emojis are no longer the preserve of texting teens – instead, they have been embraced as a nuanced form of expression, and one which can cross language barriers. Even Hillary Clinton solicited feedback in the form of emojis, and has had notable use from celebrities and brands alongside everyone else – and even appeared as the caption to the Vine which apparently kicked off the popularity of the term on fleek, which appears on our WOTY shortlist.
 
Now that we’re all used to emojis being a shorthand method of communicating our thoughts, emotions, and responses, it made us wonder: what would it look like if you used emojis in real life? Our video imagines what exactly would happen.(oxforddictionaries.com)
