英语成为世界通用语的前景

【2019-05-27】

最近在朋友家里看了一会儿EuroVision,之前竟不知道有这比赛,据说在澳洲还挺受欢迎,不知是不是因为近些年也开始有澳洲歌手参赛的缘故,引起我注意的一点是,我听到的那四五位歌手,全部是用英语演唱的,尽管我对英语成为世界通用语的前景早已确信无疑,但发展这么快还是超出了我的预期,查了一下,我的采样并未偏离常态:

【2019-05-27】 最近在朋友家里看了一会儿EuroVision,之前竟不知道有这比赛,据说在澳洲还挺受欢迎,不知是不是因为近些年也开始有澳洲歌手参赛的缘故,引起我注意的一点是,我听到的那四五位歌手,全部是用英语演唱的,尽管我对英语成为世界通用语的前景早已确信无疑,但发展这么快还是超出了我的预期,查了一下,我的采样并未偏离常态:

Since the language rule was abolished in 1999, songs in English have become increasingly common. In 2016, all but three out of 36 semi-finalists had songs in English, with only two (Bosnia and Herzegovina and Northen Macedonia) performing songs in their native languages, as Austria sent a song in French. In the final, all but three out of 26 contestants had songs in English.

而且从主办方多次改变语言规则的情形看,非英语国家的歌手用英语唱是不受鼓励的,曾两度被规则禁止,最终解禁看来是顺应大众需要而迫不得已。 从更详细的数据看,自从1999年规则改变之后,英语几乎一统天下。
