The script of this programme 本節目台詞

Yang Li: Hello, I'm Yang Li, and welcome to Authentic Real English. 在地道英語節目我們會為大家介紹平時字典裏看不到的一些單詞和短語。Joining me in the studio today is Finn, hi Finn! Hi Finn!

Finn: (Typing) Hi there, bear with me one second, I'll just... finish... this... There! Done.

Yang Li: What are you up to?

Finn: Well, it's quite exciting really. I've just entered the blogosphere for the first time!

Yang Li: The what? I think you're mistaken, you're right here in the studio.

Finn: I don't think you understand. Haven't you heard of the blogosphere?

Yang Li: The blogosphere? 這個詞我倒從來沒聽說過,是和宇宙有關的嗎?

Finn: You're thinking of the atmosphere. Let me try and explain it to you. Have you heard of blogs before?

Someone blogging on Facebook

What is the 'blogosphere'?

Yang Li: Of course I've heard of a blog. 博客,不就是上網發表的那些個人言論嗎?

Finn: That's right. The word blog is actually short for 'web log' - 'blog'. Blogs can be long or short, and they are very popular.

Yang Li: 那麼你提到的 the blogosphere 又是什麼呢?

Finn: The blogosphere is a general word used to describe the world of blogging and the people in it. If you read a blog or write - or post - one, you are part of the blogosphere.

Yang Li: 原來是這樣啊,blogosphere 就是博客圈的意思,包括了博客文章和寫博客的人。So you said you have become part of the blogosphere yourself - have you written a blog?

Finn: I've written a microblog - that's a very short blog post which is limited to a certain number of characters. Usually it's about one or two sentences.

Yang Li: 微博 microblog 顧名思義就是短篇博客! 那麼你在微博上發了些什麼呢?

Finn: I wrote: "I'm presenting with Li in the studio today, I can't wait to explain some more great phrases. #bbclearningenglish."

Yang Li: Ooh you mentioned me!

Finn: I did!

Yang Li: But what was that you said at the end of it, handbag BBC Learning English?

Finn: No, I said #bbclearningenglish. A hashtag is something else that you often see on social networking websites. If you type a hash mark (#) before a word, it highlights a key word or area of interest, and you can use it to search for other blog posts which also use that word - and that's a hashtag!

Yang Li: A hash tag. 這是井號標簽,在一個單詞或短語前面加上井號,在網上搜索的時候,就能查到其他包含這個短語的博客文章。It sounds very complicated. So, if I want to write a short blog post about James Bond, I can type #jamesbond, and people searching for James Bond will be able to see my post?

Finn: Yes, in fact, the whole of the blogosphere will be able to see your post!

Yang Li: I'd love to be part of the blogosphere and try this for myself!

Finn: Well, did you know that BBC Learning English has pages on Facebook and Twitter? Why not try it out there and post your first ever microblog?

Yang Li: Thanks, I think I will. Join us again for another edition of Authentic Real English. Bye for now!

Finn: Bye!
