uvic给大家作了一个调查。在情侣的各种亲密英文称谓间,你最喜爱哪些?又不喜欢哪些?

It has become one of the most common terms of endearment used by couples, but 'babe' has been voted the most hated pet name for women. The term, made popular by Sonny and Cher's Sixties hit I Got You Babe, come out on top in a new study.

“Babe(宝贝)”一次虽然是情侣间最常用于表示亲昵的词,但最近一项调查显示,女性最讨厌“babe”这个昵称。“babe”一词曾因为Sonny和 Cher's Sixties的名曲《I Got You Babe》而为人熟知,但在最新的一项调查中被投票为女性最讨厌的昵称。

‘Sweetcheeks’, ‘snookums’ and ‘muffin’ were also a definite no no, but terms such as ‘gorgeous’, ‘beautiful’ and ‘lovely’ were considered acceptable.

“Sweetcheeks(甜妞)”“snookums(小甜心)”“muffin(可指帅哥/美女)”等昵称都是女性雷区,但“迷人的”“美丽的”“可爱的”则可以接受。

Americanised nicknames like ‘baby girl’ and ‘baby doll’ are also unpopular, along with ‘pudding’ and ‘pumpkin’. The research also revealed that only one in five Britons calls their partner by their full name the majority of the time, with the same number admitting to using a private nickname when no-one else is around.

美式的昵称如“baby girl(小宝贝)”“baby doll(洋娃娃)”,还有“pudding(布丁)”“pumpkin(小南瓜)”也不受女性欢迎。该调查同时披露,只有五分之一的英国人会在大多数时间叫另一半的全名,同样还有五分之一的人承认会在没有别人在场时叫另一半的私密昵称。

Many of the men who took part in the study also confessed to referring to their partner with terms they would only use while she was out of earshot. ‘The Mrs’ or ‘the wife’ were still used by some men, while one in six quietly referred to their partner as ‘the boss’.

参与调查的很多男士也承认另一半不在身边时会以特别称谓来指代另一半,比如一些人常用的“The Mrs(夫人)”“The wife(妻子)”,而且还有六分之一的男士悄悄承认会喊他们的另一半“the boss(领导/老板)”。
