    N = north

    E = east

    W = west

    S = south

    來自東西南北

    也就是各地的新消息

    就是新聞

    穿鑿附會的說法,不要以訛傳訛!

    The word "news" comes from a special use of the plural of the word "new", and not as the common backronym claims, from the four cardinal directions (North, East, West, and South).

    這個字頗有趣,它的解釋有二種:

    第一種如網友所述 NEWS分別代表東西南北,來自四面的消息,叫新聞。

    另一種解釋,NEW=新,而新的事務的"複數化"= +S,於是很多新鮮事,就叫新聞。

    至於中文,新聞,聞者知悉也,就是聽到或知道某些事情,知道的東西是新的,也就是之前不知道的,當然是新聞。

    這是英文單字~~應該不是簡稱~~

    就像我們是說"新聞"~~你會分開來跟人家說"立木斤" "門耳"嗎~~
