in 2010 , there is a new english word which created by chinese internet users has became the most popular word among the whole chinese networked media. it called gelivable!
some of the english media actually has focus ” gelivable” and give it a defination in English:
Chinese internet bussword which means “cool” “awesome” or”exciting “. Literally,”giving power”.
“Geili” is created from two chinese characters”Gei” and”li.” Literally, it means “giving power,” but it now widely accepted as an adjective describing something that is “cool.”
A test of a chinese jargon word’s trendiness is if users translate it into a foreign language. Acorrding to its pronunciation. “Geili” has been transformed into the English-sounding “gelivable,” and ” ungelivable.” However, ” gelivable” grabbed wider public attention after it appeared online in May in an episode of a Chinese-dubbed Japanese comic animation.Tags: internet culture
