ABSTRACT

In current Chinese, the changes of ideas caused by the social reality and the changes of life caused by new media revolution have been intertwined, and been presented by a rich deconstruction phenomenon occurred in the field of words meaning. Deconstruction means that the original meaning of the concept is broken, the old meaning scope is deconstructed gradually ( not disappear) and the new meaning is accumulated continuously. Social mainstream thought, pop culture, the factors from people(as language’s host)and language development are leading to the meaning’s deconstruction. The current deconstruction of Chinese words meaning has two kinds of forms: explicit form and intrinsic form. It can come from the rationale of logical reasoning, language game, self-mockery or ridicule others, court jester as well. Meaning’s deconstruction doesn’t mean simple destruction or subversion, but aims at meaningful reconstruction. In fact, the significance of deconstruction and reconstruction are actually two aspects of the same phenomenon. During the past decade, under the leadership of Chinese civil power, a lot of deconstructions of the words meaning appeared in Chinese language, which shows that common people intend to grasp the right to speak more. We can see that it also currently affected China’s mainstream thought or trend. This observation comes from the perspective of deconstruction and towards the newest development of the Chinese words meaning, the purpose is to research on the trends of living Chinese language better in our new media age.
