注释
One can readily see that debunk is constructed from the prefix de-, meaning “to remove,” and the word bunk. But what is the origin of the word bunk, denoting the nonsense that is to be removed? Bunk came from a place where much bunk has originated, the United States Congress. During the 16th Congress (1819-1821) Felix Walker, a representative from western North Carolina whose district included Buncombe County, continued on with a dull speech in the face of protests by his colleagues. Walker replied he had felt obligated “to make a speech for Buncombe.” Such a masterful symbol for empty talk could not be ignored by the speakers of the language, and Buncombe, actually spelled Bunkum in its first recorded appearance in 1828 and later shortened to bunk, became synonymous with claptrap. The response to all this bunk seems to have been delayed, for debunk is not recorded until 1923.
可以很容易地看出debunk 是由前缀 de-, 表“去掉”和单词bunk 构成的。 可是单词bunk 表示“要除去的无稽之谈”的含意的起源是什么呢? Bunk 来自美国国会,一个产生大量空话、假话的地方。在第16届国会期间(1819-1821年),一个来自北卡罗来纳州西部(其区域包括邦克姆县)的代表费列克斯·沃尔克面对其同僚们的抗议,而进行持续冗长枯燥的演讲,沃尔克说他有责任“为邦克姆发表演说”。这种说空话的杰作是不会被说英语的人忽视的。Buncombe 实际上在1828年第一次被记载时拼作 Bunkum , 后来缩写成Bunk 并成为 claptrap 的同义词。 对这空话的反应似乎被耽搁了,因为debunk 直到1923年才被记录下来
