Li
Hello, this is Authentic Real English, with me Li…

Neil
…and me Neil. Hello! What’s the matter with you? You’re upset, I can tell.

Li
我能不生氣嗎?!Neil, 你說怎麼總有人在我的社交媒體簡介頁面里發負面的東西。不管我寫什麼東西一概是否否否,也不闡述為什麼不同意我的觀點,就只是一味批評,而且沒完沒了。氣死我了!

Neil
Ah… Don’t worry, Li. They might be what people are calling ‘haters’.

Li
Haters 懷恨在心的人。Yes, I’ve heard this word before. 動詞 hate 的意思是”強烈憤恨,strongly dislike something”,對吧?

Neil
Yes. And the word ‘hater’ has been used to describe somebody who says or writes unpleasant things about others or criticises their achievements, especially on the internet.

Li
That’s right. Hater 懷恨在心的人。通常用來指那些在互聯網上總是指責批評別人的、發表負面言論的人。And how is it different from the word ‘troll’? 另一個詞兒 troll 是不是也是這個意思?

Neil
Well, language evolves and words can take on new meanings. A troll is an ugly creature from folk tales who often behaves in an antisocial way. But these days we call people who leave deliberately annoying or upsetting messages on the internet – while hiding their true identity – ‘trolls’. 

Li
語言在發展。有些老詞有了新意。比如 troll 這個詞在最初的民間傳說裡面指一個醜陋的,經常違背社會公德的人。不過,在互聯網統領的當今,人們往往用這個詞來形容那些不透露真實身份在網上發表惡意中傷言論的人。稱這類人為 trolls,類似中文網絡用語里的”釣魚、小白、引戰”。

Neil
‘Troll’ and ‘hater’ are today’s expressions in Authentic Real English. Let’s hear some examples of how they’re used.

Examples
Joan is fed up with a troll who posts comments on her cooking blog saying that she is fat and should only eat lettuce.

Haters will always have something negative to say. As I read in a comment on Pinterest: “Haters will see you walk on water and say it’s because you can’t swim.”

Neil
You shouldn’t bother about ‘haters’, Li. As singer Taylor Swift says in her song Shake It Off, “haters are gonna hate”.

Li
Yes,我非常希望來一場痛快地辯論,可是這些 haters and trolls 肯定不願意。All they want is to annoy people. 

Neil
That’s more like it. Now let me go and update my Facebook status and check my Twitter account.

Li
Me too. Bye bye!

Neil
Bye!
