注释
The origin of ballyhoo has been the subject of much speculation. This spelling has actually graced four different words: ballyhoo, “sensational advertising”; ballyhoo, a spelling of balao, a kind of fish; ballyhoo, a part of the name ballyhoo bird, about which more later; and ballyhoo, a sailor's epithet for a disliked ship. This last ballyhoo (first recorded in 1836) was thought to be related to, or the same as, the word ballahou, from Spanish balahú, “a type of schooner common in the Antilles.” First recorded in 1867, ballahou, besides being a term for a specific kind of ship, was also used contemptuously of inferior ships. But the connection between these sailing terms or the name of the fish and our word ballyhoo, first recorded in 1901, has not been established. There may, however, be a tie between ballyhoo and the creature called a ballyhoo bird. According to a July 1880 article in Harper's, the bird had four wings and two heads and could whistle through one bill while singing through the other. Anyone who has ever hunted a snipe will know what hunting ballyhoo birds was like.
单词ballyhoo 的来源一直存在种种推测。 这个词的拼写实际上包含有四个不同的词:ballyhoo, 意为“耸人听闻的广告”; ballyhoo, 是 balao 的一种拼写,是一种鱼; ballyhoo, 是 ballyhoo bird 的一部分,其出现更晚; 还有一个是ballyhoo, 是水手对不喜欢的船的称呼。 这最后一个ballyhoo (最早记载于1836年)被认为与 ballahou 有关或相同, 该词来自西班牙语balahu, 意为“流行于安地列斯群岛的一种纵帆船。” 首次记载于1867年,ballahou 一词除表示一种特殊的船外, 还表示同时代的劣等船。但这些与航海有关的词或鱼类名称的词与我们所使用的、首次记载于1901年的一词ballyhoo 之间尚未建立联系。 然而也许ballyhoo 一词与被称为 ballyhoo bird 的生物之间有某种联系。 根据1880年7月哈帕斯 杂志中一篇文章的描写, 这种鸟有四翅双头,可以用其中一张嘴吹哨,同时用另一张嘴唱歌。任何曾经猎过鹬鸟的人将会知道捕猎“巴里嗬”鸟是怎样的一种情景
