Abstract
This article reviews the “Words of the Year” in China in 2013 and 2014. It finds that government policy is the driving force behind the official list of newly coined words. Yet popular consciousness and topical events emerge as new words that express the mood of the ordinary people.

Keywords: cultural, discourse, lexicon, political, mass media, newly coined words, tolerance

A Part of Article

So, we can see that the trend from the Words of the Year in 2013 and 2014 in China shows the government is taking an upper hand in shaping public opinion by strong control of mass media. The tendency is strengthening as politics takes priority with the government advocating a positive image among the ordinary people. The rise of newly coined words by the people are selectively promoted by the government when they match the government policy, yet the voice of the ordinary people still finds its way into the new lexicon.
