你知道英语中最有趣的单词是什么吗?

字体 -

一项新出炉的科学调查显示,“booty”是英语中最有趣的单词。一般而言,科学是分析不出幽默感的,但虽然计算公式不能创造出新的笑话,却可以识别出人们觉得有趣的东西,比如单词。

华威大学(the University of Warwick )的研究人员就利用互联网调查发现了英语中最有趣的单词。在调查中,心理学家向800名在线志愿者提交了5000个随机选择的单词。

每个单词的喜感程度都被分为一至五个等级,五级代表最幽默有趣。最终,“booty”成为最有趣的单词,随后九个最有趣的单词依次为:tit、 booby、 hooter、nitwit、 twit、 waddle、 tinkle、 bebop、 egghead、 ass 和twerp。

每个调查参与者都提交了他们的年龄、性别和教育水平。结果显示,男性比女性更倾向于认为与性相关的单词更有趣,男性也认为 weld、 prod、corn and racoon等单词更有幽默感,而女性更容易认为ennui、 holder、momma 和sod等词汇更具有喜感。

对于年龄18至32岁的年轻参与者而言,他们认为goatee、joint和gangster等是特别有趣的单词,而年长的受访者则认为squint、jingle、burlesque和pong等是最让他们感到有喜感的单词。

该研究的主要作者恩格塔尔(Tomas Engelthaler)指出,此次研究初步解释了他们的一些疑问,事实证明,某些有趣的词汇是可以被人所感知的。而幽默感是人们日常生活中的一个重要方面,他们希望此次公开的数据集,能让未来的研究者更好地理解和研究它。(币拍网海外支付宝充值

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

    Hi there, I believe your website may be having browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Aside from that, wonderful site!

    Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?
