stemwinder

Meaning
A rousing political speech that galvanizes people to take action, or an orator who delivers the speech. 激动人心的政治演讲,鼓动群众采取行动;鼓动人心的演讲者

19世纪中叶,stemwinder 这个词是指能上弦的胸表,当时这种上弦的胸表风行一时。 到19世纪末, stemwinder 词已经具有了比喻象征一流或卓越的意思。后来它的意思进一步的扩展,表示强大或有说服力的东西,逐步确定今天的激动人心的政治演讲和演讲者的意思。

19世纪下半叶和20世纪初一些作家使用了stemwinder,例如马克·吐温,杰克·伦敦和奥·亨利。stemwinder该词起源的痕迹几乎已从流行文化中消失了,如同上弦的胸表早已从我们日常生活中消失了。
