 1998-2018! He has collected 20 years of Chinese catchwords. What have you witnessed?

Huang Jiwei is 60 years old.

He has been a teacher, a journalist, and is now the Deputy editor-in-chief of a publishing house. More people see his name on blogs and columns.

Since 1998, Huang Jiwei has spent his spare time collecting and recording catchphrases. Familiar friends say that Huang Jiwei is a man with greedy ears and poor mouth. He catches all kinds of words in a box and makes specimens for exhibition in weekly, monthly and annual cycles.

In the past 20 years, Huang Jiwei is about to retire, but the sideline of collecting catchphrases has continued. In his opinion, they are the keys to his experience of the times. You can see all kinds of people through knowing the autumn from one leaf.

Huang Jiwei is not old, thin, dark-haired, often attends forums and lectures, and has no communication barriers with young people, even knows more stalks than the other side.

For some time, the name of hoax became a trend, and friends joked with Huang Jiwei, calling him Huang Jiwei is a great glorious and correct teacher.

The young people who like him draw tigers and cats, and give him a new name: Huang Jis great dream is naive and romantic as a teacher. Huang Jiwei heard this and squinted and smiled.

Sample collector

As in previous 19 years, Huang Jiwei used catchwords to mark 2018 just past.

Every week, there are words from the small game of frog, from the tremor of tremor, from the film I am not a god of medicine of medicine, and from Fan Bingbing tax case of tax.

There are also many screen words selected: Buddha, small milk dogs, 233; piggy Paige tattoo, applause to the social people; happy point friends, the world is not worth it.

Im so happy. Huang Jiwei begins with this sentence, describing his surprise when he sees some new words. In 1997, on a business trip to Changchun, Huang Jiwei glimpsed a sign called Big Brother City Bath Square. It was interesting and thought for a long time: bathing in the Square was novel enough; Big Brother was derived from Big Brother, which was just emerging at that time. The two collided, and Huang Jiwei was happy and began collecting catchphrases for 20 years.

As the time line lengthened, people often traced back to the starting point of his behavior, and he kept talking about the sign.

The first popular phrase put in the specimen box was You dont talk to me about Clinton. That year, when the Clinton scandal was rife, people used this phrase to conjecture that they were confused.

At that time, most of the catchwords originated from the traditional media. A line of flicker, then flicker in the spring evening was very popular.

After the millennium, the Internet has witnessed a magnificent development, and catchphrases have also had a new birth platform, which has undergone tremendous changes.

In 2003, Baidu Tieba began internal testing, BBS and Tianya were popular in the same period, and mobile phones also entered ordinary peoples homes. They began to become the cradle of network culture. In the words notes of those years, Huang Jiwei recorded Gong, Jianghu Account, Thumb Nationality, Moonlight Nationality...

Zhou Xuns chin is on sale recently. It can be discounted by 85 percent. This is a sentence he extracted from the short story of the writer Bo Whale and Whale. Under the commercial tide, there were also purchase restriction orders, limited edition, love crazy (iPhone) andlove broken (iPod)popular in the same period.

After 2010, microblogging gradually entered its heyday. The euphemisms of hide-and-seek cat and crisp building were included in Huang Jiweis catchphrases at that time. The microblogging abduction which netizens participated extensively was also recorded. Southern Weekend published the article Watching to Change China, and individuals began to enter the public opinion field. Huang Jiwei concluded that in the information age, the more covert the more explosive.

Since 1998, Huang Jiwei has published 67 Notes on Words and by the end of the year, they were collected and published as paper books.

Since 1998, Huang Jiwei has compiled and published the catchwords collected every year as Notes on Words. New Beijing News reporter Wang Shuangxing

Organizational evaluation of Huang Jiweis Notes on Words: not only can we see all kinds of life, but also the changes of the worlds customs, which is actually a well-known social history.

Nowadays, social networking platforms are shifting more to Wechat. Short videos are coming out and the media is in the ascendant. The catchwords are updated and spread more and more quickly, and they are stored in history more and more quickly. Mars has become a group of peoples youth memory. Spring Festival Gala has become a guide for the nostalgia of a generation.

Huang Jiwei found that the large-scale national resonance has become less, and personalized emotional expression has become more and more. Everyone is a piece of hand. Li Dan and Papi sauce are transmitted on social media, fashion culture of Tun Zi and Tucao culture become young peoples fashion expression.

There are more and more phenomena of sentence-making and word-compression, such as all objects and one word is not perfect... Huang Jiwei once summarized in a lecture: This kind of transformation can see the tendency of saving the mass language life day by day. Convenience is the highest principle in an information and media society where efficiency is the yardstick of everything.

Intoxicated oxygen

Huang Jiwei never shrugged off his love for Chinese and began to sprout from his youth.

In 1966, Huang Jiwei attended primary school.

Occasionally, there are so-called graduation examinations, but in fact, they are very flexible. They go to work, to farm, and to earthquake relief. Huang Jiwei recalled, We always said that we grew up drinking wolf milk and had no systematic education.

A few highlight moments are in the second grade of junior high school. A teacher surnamed Zhu came to teach Chinese. In her first Chinese class, she spent 45 minutes speaking only one word.

Huang Jiwei recalled that the text of that lesson was In Memory of Bethune. Mr. Zhu did not talk about the background of the times, nor did he read the text. Instead, he used the time of a lesson to say a word: read. From commemoration to missing, belief, recitation and missing. The whole class was shocked.

Many years later, Huang Jiwei wrote in his article recalling Mr. Zhu: In the small quiet crack that occasionally cracked out in the red context of the Cultural Revolution, I first realized the charm of Chinese characters, the hidden behind those seemingly ordinary Chinese characters, or the magnificent waves of rivers and mountains, or deep feelings.

Slogans, quotations, model operas, monotonous lack of expression of the times, all over the country are templates. In this context of growth, Huang Jiwei is squeezed dry sponge, once encountering water, it can not help but absorb crazily.

At that time, he would go to No. 101 Middle School next to the Summer Palace to attend the lecture. The teacher stood in front of him and said, How to write a composition, how to express the real life, not to make up a mess. The small auditorium-style classroom was packed with hundreds of people, even on the windowsill.

Huang Jiwei, a senior high school student, first saw a modern Chinese dictionary. The trial edition of 1973, with a yellow cover and a thick brick-like book, is a reference book for teachers.

It may be hard for young people nowadays to imagine my mood at that time, just like the first time a rural child saw a light or a train so fresh, I think, hey, how can there be such a book, so good-looking? Huang Jiwei recalled that he began borrowing the dictionary around his teacher, and finally won the right to use it for three days.

At that time, when I went to school, my vocabulary was very limited. When you first see a dictionary and see so many words, the excitement and shock is very strong, like opening up a new world. Huang Jiwei took a breath and drew a circle in the air with his hand. In those three days, I looked at the dictionary every day, and copied it from the book and tried my best to copy it. Today it looks ridiculous, but at that time it was really frightened, frightened by love.

He used drunk oxygen to describe the feeling at that time: when you are locked in a dark room, without windows, if suddenly open the windows, a lot of fresh air comes in, people will faint.

Hunger left a legacy in his schooldays, and since then Huang Jiwei has become obsessed with buying dictionaries. A variety of dictionaries are placed in the bookcase. A book about the word ran is two or three centimeters thick. There are also Death Elegance purchased from Xidan Building, which uses more than 1.5 million words to say death from ancient times to the present.

The charm of words takes root passively and actively under the special background of the times.

Theres a sense offinding

Resuming the college entrance examination, Huang Jiwei was admitted to the Chinese Department of Beijing Normal University. The Golden Age, which is often missed by people in the future, soon began. Before the tide of commodity economy swept over, literature and art were once the background and halo of the era.

In those years, Zhang Yimou planted two hundred mu of Red Sorghum in Gaomi to make movies, Chen Kaige won the Golden Palm Award; Cui Jian sang Nothing on the stage and the Black Panther carried out puncture action; Beidao and Gu Cheng could only escape through the window in the crowds of audience at the recitation meeting, and The Course of Beauty was the best seller at that time...

Dancing prose and making ink is the same thing that Huang Jiwei loves. He reads and writes books. Many years later, he still keeps many original lyrics on the green A6 loose-leaf book.

After graduation, Huang Jiwei went to a middle school to teach Chinese for six years. His former students visited him and copied several lyrics for a university performance. One of them is called Friends. In the 1980s, a singer named Zang Tianshuo sang it out. For a period of time, young people in the streets and lanes were humming Friends, friends, have you ever thought of me?

At the party at that time, high school students and Huang Jiwei talk, serious expression: You resign now, go home and do nothing, just write lyrics.

Huang Jiwei never thought of using it to make a name for himself, but also felt that writing lyrics was not what he was good at. He talked and laughed with his old classmates at the dinner table and went back to run on the track he had chosen.

Later, he worked as a journalist in a newspaper, an editor in a magazine, a guest host in a radio station, and now as a vice-editor in a publishing house.

As guest host, Huang Jiwei opened a radio program called Island Interview in the 1990s. He took the guests to a virtual island with no worries about food and clothing. If only one book was allowed, which one would you like to bring? The interview began.

To go to Gudao only need to turn off the BP machine and bid farewell to Karaoke and stock. When Wang Xiaobo participated in Huang Jiweis interview as a guest, he was not labeled Freedom Knight. Huang invited him to introduce himself and said, Many readers dont know you very well.

In more than a year, Huang Jiwei visited more than 30 guests. He paid 20 yuan for each program, but he often spent 30 or 40 yuan by taxi. Twenty years later, he recalled that he was still excited, and that he was amazed by the actions of his youth, and could not help exclaiming that it was the most precious time.

I joked with people that, you see, I have read, taught, written and written books all my life, and now I am compiling books in publishing houses, which is my favorite thing. Huang Jiwei smiled and narrowed his eyes into two lines: Pisces, it seems very difficult to do things they dont like.

Since 1998, Huang Jiwei began collecting catchwords. Still like things, but a little more sense of fit and achievement. There used to be a seat, but its also a seat for others to sit in. Then suddenly one day, you suddenly want to do something, and this is your unique way of expression, you do very comfortable, others are not upset, you feel very happy, there is a sense of find.

The meaning of life is like a pocket

Huang Jiwei especially preferred the expression of complex after observing the catchwords for 20 years.

In 2001, the TV series Black Ice was launched. Wang Zhiwen plays the role of Guo Xiaopeng, a drug lord who is both positive and evil, but gentle and elegant. In the planning of commercial conspiracy, he cites classics from time to time and is still in the prison humming Beethovens Destiny.

Dusk is sinking, clouds are floating all over the sky in winter, and a bird suddenly flies over the treetops. Guo Xiaopeng in the TV play stood on the execution ground and said to himself, Look at that bird, did it fly out of Xin Qijis words?

Huang Jiwei, who was in front of the TV set, was hit at once. After more than ten years of recalling, he still couldnt help sitting upright from his chair and describing the scene with his arms waving. I think this is what the character said, and the richness of his heart came out. Drug lords are not just written with big arms and full of slogans. It reminds me that this drug lord is not the drug lord. He is unique, real and three-dimensional.

This line was eventually included in his dictionary note Very Beautiful Hunting, with black and white pictures interspersed in the old pages. Huang Jiwei wrote in his interpretation: A unique drug lord will win more applause than a mountain sculpture without being turned into a mountain sculpture by Facebook.

Now walking on the road, Huang Jiwei still cant help but be excited when he sees a wonderful advertisement. When he sees interesting words on the Internet, he records them conditionally. Some time ago, Nike produced a new shoe. Young colleagues complained in the office that they could not grab it. Huang Jiwei was not interested in shoes, but was interested in the color of shoes. He took out a book and wrote down powdery powder.

Either as a teacher or as an editor, even if it is richer, it is single. But this hobby helps me to see all kinds of people and how many people live and think, because paying attention to language can keep people in touch with the times, and at the same time find a unique way to express themselves. Its good. He said.

Huang Jiwei once said in an interview with the media that the meaning of life is like a pocket of face, what is in it, a bag of potatoes is potatoes, if he chooses, a bag of words.

Nowadays, the Internet is speeding up the creation of catchwords, so that this kind of language grows wildly in a completely new space and time. The microphone is delivered to everyone, and everybody participates in and constructs the Internet culture in all kinds of ways.

Huang Jiwei feels that the Internet has released the vitality of the language and increased the expressive ability of the Chinese language, becoming rich and colorful. At the same time, they are the best witnesses in the increasingly swollen and noisy city. History is always written by winners, but the words are there, right?

Nevertheless, running water is not rotten, a symbol of vitality and vitality, but also brings sediment and branches. Some people worry that the Internet catchwords pollute the Chinese environment, while others doubt that the widespread use of catchwords will affect peoples independent thinking.

Huang Jiwei feels that when catchwords are created, new ways of expression enhance the activity of folk languages, but in large-scale use, because of its convenience, peoples thinking will be limited. It actually locks you in, you will unconsciously say `unknowingly strong. Huang Jiwei said, Be cautious, or have a choice, it can not become the main body of your personal language, at most embellishment.

Thank you, Baby Teacher

In the office where the publishing house was full of books, the January wind flowed through the cracks in the window. Huang Jiwei wore a dark blue T-shirt with a black waistcoat, which looked stylish and old-fashioned.

Recording catchwords for 20 years, Huang Jiwei, who is now the year of Huajia, still maintains the most vivid expression and never worries about communication barriers with young people.

The local love story spread everywhere, and he ran to the bean paste group to see how many Earth there was. Super time and cohabitation was popular. He also went into the cinema with the young audience. WeChat was hot. He also opened his own public number. It was called boring with each other.

Huang Jiwei sometimes responds to comments from netizens. The most commonly used expressions are laughing and crying and covering your face and crying. In the 2008 data report released by Wechat, they are the favorite expressions used by post-90s and Post-Zero generations.

Huang Jiwei, 60, was invited to attend a speech in 2018, just before winter in the north.

On that day, he talked about the name of the art from the naming art to the weird network names, and from the network section to the local flavor words, the Internet buzzwords spanning 20 years time and space loomed on the PPT. There were listeners taking pictures and sending micro-blog with their mobile phones, and others laughing on the back of the front row.

Huang Jiwei named his speech Small Scale of Rejuvenation from the poem of the heart of wood, which means the joy and perception of life brought by catchwords.

At the end of the speech, he told a little story. A netizen had a fever and didnt go to work. His three-year-old nephew called her and said, Baby, are you better? She was surprised. She said what you screamed, you should call me aunt and how to call me baby. My three-year-old nephew said milkly, My mother said,Call the baby the person you like.

This sentence I want to end todays sharing, thank you baby. Huang Jiwei bowed goodbye and laughed and applauded.

Video was sent to the Internet, barrage screen countless, young netizens have brush screen: Thank you, baby teacher.
