    Californiacation應該是加州化的意思喔!!!

    Californiacation是Californiacate(動詞)的名詞,而Californiacate可以拆解成

    1.California加州

    2.-cate動詞字根,...這裡表示...化的意思

    所以Californiacate是"加州化"的動詞....Californiacation是"加州化"的名詞

    加州化其實簡單說就是拿美國文化的代表:加州文化的推展為代表,讓其他地區,甚至是全球都產生跟加州一樣的品味和偏好的現象.其實日本的商業大師大前研一就將這種現象稱之為「品味(及偏好)的加州化」.

    我想你大概是聽到red hot chili peppers的同名歌曲Californiacation而有此問吧

    其實從歌詞裡就概略也可以理解.例如

    1.buy me a star on the boulevard It's Californication

    因為好萊塢就在加州,好萊塢的名人大道(Walk of Fame)上的星星是名氣地位的象徵,所以才說買給我一個"星星"buy me a star當作愛情情深意重的表徵

    2.Little girls from Sweden dream of silver screen quotations

    And if you want these kind of dreams

    It's Californication

    想要在銀幕上的一角出現自己的名字..如果有這種夢.那也是加州化!!

    這些 就是所謂加州化Californiacation的現象啦...

    Hello,首先,您拼錯了,是 Californication, 是美國一個很有名的音樂團體Red Hot Chili Peppers 的歌,這是他們自創的字,所以當然你再一般的字典裡一定找不到的。您可以參考 www.urbandictionary.com -- 一個美國很有名的俚語網站裡面有一位這樣解釋: "Western society's pop culture and media encroachment and spread all over the world. In particular, the negative aspects of media and culture originating from within the United States' 31st State: California."大致上,就是"整個世界受西方社會的文化及媒體影響,尤其是美國加州的Hollywood的電影等的媒體的影響"。這些都是從它的歌詞裡講的猜得知的。歌詞如下:Psychic spies from China Try to steal your mind's elation Little girls from Sweden Dream of silver screen quotations And if you want these kind of dreams It's Californication It's the edge of the world And all of western civilization The sun may rise in the East At least it settles in the final location It's understood that Hollywood sells Californication Pay your surgeon very well To break the spell of aging Celebrity skin is this your chin Or is that war your waging [Chorus:]First born unicorn Hard core soft porn Dream of Californication Dream of Californication Marry me girl be my fairy to the world Be my very own constellation A teenage bride with a baby inside Getting high on information And buy me a star on the boulevard It's Californication Space may be the final frontier But it's made in a Hollywood basement Cobain can you hear the spheres Singing songs off station to station And Alderon's not far away It's Californication Born and raised by those who praise Control of population everybody's been thereand I don't mean on vacation [Chorus]Destruction leads to a very rough road But it also breeds creation And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar They're just another good vibration And tidal waves couldn't save the world From Californication Pay your surgeon very well To break the spell of aging Sicker than the rest There is no test But this is what you're craving [Chorus]慢慢地從歌詞裡體會它的意思吧!  裡面很多都是加州的"特色"! :D希望有幫到您!

    這個字是編的﹐本身沒這個字﹐我忘了是誰的CD名了。Californication是California(美國加州)和fornication(偷情)這兩個字的合成字﹐可以解釋為"加州式偷情"。註1﹕加州在美國流行文化中帶有瘋狂享樂道德沉淪的色彩。註2﹕fornication嚴格說起來是非婚性行為﹐只要參與的兩人不是互相的配偶就算﹐所以婚前性行為也是fornication的一種。

    啊﹐要不是KY指出﹐我根本就把發問者問的字看成Californication了﹐該檢查眼睛了呵呵~
