扩展英文词汇的一个方法… hip-hop style!


看Angry Editor豆瓣小组里这的一贴《检验美国高中生英文水平的100个单词,你认识几个》让我想到几年前我想出的“HIP-HOP式扩展词汇方法”。

2003年我曾在印度一座佛教寺庙教过七个月的英文。课程已经结束的时候,我突然想出个idea:如果把下面的歌给我的学生作为“教材”,举行比赛看谁能够背出歌词。我当时觉得这种比赛对一群既爱hip-hop又爱背英文单词的和尚,会特别有用而且特别好玩儿。没有机会举行这么一个比赛,我一直很后悔…

虽然这首歌里有些没有用的词汇,但是我还是觉得它跟《美国高中生英文水平的100个单词》一样实用。因此,如果你是那种“非背单词不可”的人(平时Angry Editor认为背单词就是浪费时间),我推荐你看一下… 即使不实用还是很好听呢。

看下面的歌词之前,你听懂百分之多少?

(Now it’s time for our wrap up
Let’s give it everything we’ve got
Ready? Begin)

Artificial amateurs, aren’t at all amazing
Analytically, I assault, animate things
Broken barriers bounded by the bomb beat
Buildings are broken, basically I’m bombarding
Casually create catastrophes, casualties
Cancelling cats got their canopies collapsing
Detonate a dime of dank daily doin dough
Demonstrations, Don Dada on the down low
Eatin other editors with each and every energetic
Epileptic episode, elevated etiquette
Furious fat fabulous fantastic
Flurries of funk felt feeding the fanatics
Gift got great global goods gone glorious
Gettin godly in his game with the goriest
Hit em high, hella height, historical
Hey holocaust hints hear ‘em holler at your homeboy
Imitators idolize, I intimidate
In a instant, I’ll rise in a irate state
Juiced on my jams like jheri curls jockin joints
Justly, it’s just me, writin my journals
Kindly I’m kindling all kinds of ink on
Karate kick type brits in my kingdom
Let me live a long life, lyrically lessons is
Learned lame louses just lose to my livery
My mind makes marvelous moves, masses
Marvel and move, many mock what I’ve mastered
Niggas nap knowin I’m nice naturally
Knack, never lack, make noise nationally
Operation, opposition, off, not optional
Out of sight, out of mind, wide beaming opticals
Perfected poem, powerful punchlines
Pummelling petty powder puffs in my prime
Quite quaint quotes keep quiet it’s Quannum
Quarrelers ain’t got a quarter of what we got uh
Really raw raps, risin up rapidly
Riding the rushing radioactivity
Super scientifical sound search sought
Silencing super fire saps that are soft
Tales ten times talented, too tough
Take that, challengers, get a tune up
Universal, unique untouched
Unadulterated, the raw uncut
Verb vice lord victorious valid
Violate vibes that are vain make em vanished
While I’m all well would a wise wordsmith just
Weaving up words weeded up on my workshift
Xerox, my X-radiation holes extra large
X-height letters, and xylophone tones
Yellow back, yak mouth, young ones yaws
Yesterday’s lawn yards sell our (yawn?)
Zig zag zombies, zoomin to the zenith
Zero in zen thoughts, overzealous rhyme ZEA-LOTS!….

(good….can you say it faster?)
