But the most ubiquitous Tyra-ism is "smize," meaning "to smile with your eyes."

但是人们用得最多的是smize,意思是“用眼睛微笑”。

In fact, the word (and phenomenon) became so popular that Banks released an app to help smartphone users master the art of smizing.

事实上,这个词(和现象)太受欢迎了,班克斯甚至为此发布了一款智能手机应用,帮助用户学会用眼睛微笑。

Although the term actually predates the Destiny's Child song, Queen Bey is credited with popularizing "bootylicious."

虽然这个词在“真命天女”组合发布同名单曲之前就已经存在了,但是这个词能够流传开来,碧昂斯功不可没。

Meaning "sexually attractive," this compound word is so widespread that it made it into the Oxford English Dictionary.

这个合成词的意思是“具有性吸引力”,因为应用很广泛还被收录进了《牛津英语辞典》。

Taylor Swift coined this portmanteau of "Swift" and "Christmas" in 2014. Now an annual tradition, the term refers to the lavish gifts she mails her fans around the holiday season.

泰勒·斯威夫特于2014年创造了这个Swift和Christmas的合成词。如今已成为年度传统,指的是泰勒在圣诞节前后给粉丝寄出的丰厚礼物。

In an effort to take her personal brand to the next level, the singer applied to trademark "Swiftmas" (as well as phrases related to her albums) in 2015.

This acronym, which stands for "gym, tan, laundry," comes from MTV's "Jersey Shore." Although it was popularized by cast member Pauly D, it turns out that the phrase was actually invented by series producer SallyAnn Salsano.

这个缩略语代表的意思是“健身房、美黑、洗衣服”,来自MTV电视台的《泽西海岸》。尽管这个词是因为剧中演员保罗·D而流行开来的,但事实上这个词是由该剧的制片人萨利安·萨尔萨诺创造的。

"We started summarizing the day's shoots on whiteboards and just started writing GTL for short, and Pauly was in front of the camera like, 'GTL? What's that?''' Salsano said in an interview with Complex.

萨尔萨诺在《Complex》杂志的一次采访中说:“我们开始在白板上给当天的拍摄做总结,我刚刚写下GTL这个缩写,保罗就在镜头前说‘GTL?这是什么?’”

Meaning "done" or "finished," "dunzo" originated on another MTV series, "Laguna Beach."

新词dunzo表示“做完了”,源于MTV电视台的另一部剧《拉古纳海滩》。

It became so popular that it even entered the notably colorful lexicon of Tom Haverford on "Parks and Rec."

这个词太流行了,以至于《公园与游憩》中以词汇丰富著称的汤姆·哈弗福德也用了这个词。

"Fleek" comes from the phrase "on fleek," which was coined in 2014 by viral Vine star Kayla Newman (better known by her username, Peaches Monroee).

It's typically used to refer to well-groomed eyebrows, but can be applied to anything from hair to makeup.

Fleek通常用来指修剪得很完美的眉毛,但也可用来指打理得很好的发型或妆容。

We hear a lot about celebrity clapbacks these days. Merriam-Webster defines "clapback" as "responding to a criticism with a withering comeback."

我们最近经常听说名人的clapback。韦氏词典对clapback的定义是“用极具讽刺性的回答来应对批评声”接近于汉语里的“回呛”。

Although it's commonly used as a noun, it stems from the verb "clap back," the name of rapper Ja Rule's 2003 diss track.

Clapback通常用作名词,不过该词源于动词短语clap back,是说唱歌手杰·鲁2003年的一首攻击性单曲的名字。

We can thank Drake for the widespread usage of "YOLO," but the Canadian rapper wasn't the only celeb to tap into that particular zeitgeist.

Long before the rise of "post-truth" politics and alternative facts, late-night host Stephen Colbert came up with the clever word "truthiness."

早在后真相政治和另类事实出现之前,深夜节目主播史蒂芬·科拜尔就发明了truthiness这个聪明的词。

"We're not talking about the truth; we're talking about something that seems like truth — the truth we want to exist," he said, referring to George W. Bush.

他曾说过:“我们谈论的不是真相;我们谈论的是看起来像真相的东西——我们希望存在的真相。”他当时指的是美国前总统小布什。

无可否认,amazeballs这个词无处不在。这个词是佩雷斯·希尔顿创造的,意思是“极好的、让人印象非常深刻或愉悦”的东西。
