Background背景阅读

Jackie Singer, an Irvine psychotherapist, says she has counseled a number of weary couples who work long hours during the week, spend weekends running around with their kids and seldom find time for each other. She has her own acronym for them: DILS (Double Income, Little Sex) or DINS (Double Income, No Sex).

周玉亮点评:

 

首字母构词法(Acronymy)是缩略法构词的一种,将一个词组或专有名词的首字母组合成一个新词。根据读音的不同又分为首字母拼音词(Acronyms)和首字母连写词(?Initialisms);前者如:NATO, SAT; 后者如:CEO, IBT等。该新词保留原始词组或专门名词的意义。首字母构词涉及科技术语、机构名词以及新新生活方式。DINK(丁克)由Double Income, No Kids首字母组合而成,而DINS(丁死)由Double Income, No Sex首字母组合而成。如果说DINK(丁克)是主观选择不要孩子,DINS(丁死)就是客观环境决定不可能有孩子,可见都市生活压力巨大,全球皆然。新词新语反映新新生活,爱思英语不断与大家分享新新人类之新新词汇
