Catchwords catch on (P4)
山东省烟台第二中学  李欣桐
 
I. Lead-in
How do you understand “catchwords”?
The examples are probably familiar to you. You might use them in everyday life.
Catchwords/buzzwords, as a kind of language phenomenon, reflect widespread concerns and ideas of a community or region in a period of time.
Language is ever changing, and English is no exception. 
 
II. Skimming-be a fast reader
•What is the passage mainly about?
Dictionary.com, the world’s leading online dictionary announced (宣布) they were adding new words in August: “plogging”; “hamster angle”; and “hot girl summer”.
 
•Divide the passage into parts and give your reason.
Part 1 (Para.1) Introduction
Part 2 (Para.2-6) Exemplification
Part 3 (Para.7) Conclusion
 
III. Scanning-be a careful reader
 (Para.1) How do you understand the title “catch on” according to the first paragraph?
English is ever changing, and new words expand the language (使语言丰富) almost every day. A leading online dictionary, proves (证明) as much when announcing (宣布) it has added some new words. 
catch on=become popular = go viral
 
(Para.2-6) What aspects are covered when introducing “plogging”? 
• “Plogging” is a buzzword combining (combine) the Swedish phrase “plocka upp” (pick up) and the English word “jogging”. 
• Described (describe) by the online dictionary as “a Swedish exercise trend that combines jogging with picking up litter”, the running trend unites environmentalism with fitness.
The fad has attracted many nature lovers concerned about (关心)the Earth’s health. “People often hike and surf as a means (方式) of reconnecting with nature – but I’ve not seen anything quite as official feeling as plogging,” US eco-life expert Ashlee Piper told NBC news.
•Plogging shows how new lifestyle trends can drive (推动) new language trends (潮流). 
Dictionary.com has added a range of terms (一系列术语) based on social media and pop culture searches.
 
(Para.2-6) According to the passage, what new words being collected in the online dictionary are used to describe selfies?
A new one is “hamster angle  (角度)”. It’s the camera angle that makes you look chubby, like a hamster. 
Selfies have become an indispensable part of our lives. 
What could be a source of new words?
Memes(表情包) are another source of new words.    
 “Hot girl summer” was also added to the popular online dictionary, which is about having fun and feeling confident in who you are.
 
(Para.7) Judge whether the statement is T or F. (Give your evidence)
•The language is and will be settled for quite a long time. F
The language continues to do what it’s been doing for as long as it’s existed: grow and adapt to meet the needs of the people who use it.
自语言出现以来,它一直都在不断发展,满足语言使用者的需求。 
 
IV. Language focus
Translate into Chinese:
 
 
 
V. Free talk
What other catchwords do you think will catch on? Why?
•Example:  
I  suppose the word _____ will go viral, because it ________________.
Furthermore, _______________. Last but not least, _____________. All in all, the word will be collected into the leading dictionary.
 
VI. Mini composition
Write a short passage to introduce the word “plogging” by using the expression we’ve just learned. (10 sentences.)
 
VII. Homework
•Find more catchwords on the internet 
•Share and compare the words with your peers.
•Choose a representative word and present it to the rest of the class next lesson.
