《剑桥词典》宣布将“升级回收”确定为年度词汇

Cambridge Dictionary has declared "upcycling" as the 2019 Word of the Year. The word "upcycling" refers to the act of making new items out of old, discarded materials. "Upcycling" was first added to the dictionary in 2011, when the editors noticed an increase in internet searches for the word. The number of searches has risen by 181 percent since then. Cambridge Dictionary's publishers believe that the word's popularity is caused by people's growing awareness of climate change and other environmental issues. Many of the words on the shortlist for Word of the Year were also related to climate change concerns, including "carbon sink" (a type of ecosystem that absorbs carbon dioxide) and "preservation" (the act of protecting something from being damaged).

《剑桥词典》将“升级回收”列为2019年度词汇。“升级回收”一词是指用废弃的旧材料来制作新东西。“升级回收”一词于2011年首次被添加到词典中,当时编辑们注意到这个词在互联网上的搜索量在增加。自那以后,搜索量增加了181%。《剑桥词典》的出版商认为,这个词之所以流行,是因为人们对气候变化和其他环境问题的意识越来越强。“年度词汇”的名单里面有许多词汇也与气候变化问题相关,包括“碳汇”(一种吸收二氧化碳的生态系统)和“保存”(保护某物免受破坏的行为)。
