This Mar, the 90th annual National Spelling Bee will feature its youngest contestant in history, 5-year-old Edith Fuller of Oklahoma.

这个三月,第90届国家级(美国)拼写小蜜蜂比赛迎来了史上最年轻的冠军——来自俄克拉荷马州年仅5岁的参赛者艾迪思·福勒。

Edith qualified for the national competition when she won her regional competition on Saturday, beating more than 50 other elementary and middle school students.She correctly spelled 37 words, including “perestroika,” “nisei,” and her final winning word, “jnana.”Edith’s mom, Annie Fuller, told Tulsa World she only learned of her daughter’s spelling skills last summer, when she correctly spelled “restaurant” despite having never been taught how.

周六她在地区级比赛中胜出,打败了其他50名来自小学和初中的学生晋级到全国赛。她正确拼写出了37个单词,包括“perestroika(改革)”“nisei(第二代日裔美国人)”,她的最后取胜词为“jnana(思辨)”。安妮·福勒——艾迪斯的母亲告诉《塔赛尔世界报》,直到去年夏天,在没有事先教授的情况下,女儿能够正确拼写“餐馆”,她才发现女儿在拼词方面的天赋。

“We knew there was something special there,” Fuller said. After that, Edith and her mom began practicing for the bee, looking up words she misspelled along the way to learn their spellings and meanings.“Learning the words was so educational. She was able to learn about different countries and cultures and different kinds of food,” Fuller said.

“我们就觉得她有点与众不同”福勒女士如是说。从那次以后,艾迪斯和她的母亲就有意识为参加小蜜蜂拼词比赛做准备。复习她拼错词的同时还另外学习这些词的拼写和意思。福勒说,“学习单词很有教育意义,她通过这些学习到不同的国家、文化以及食物”

Despite her daughter’s spelling genius, Fuller said she was simply impressed that Edith was able to stick out the four-hour competition.“She likes to move around,” Fuller said. “I’m surprised she sat still for so long.”“It’s fun to share her with everyone. I knew she’d be a novelty, so I’m proud she held her own,” Fuller said.

除了在女儿拼词方面的才能,她对于女儿能够坚持完成4小时的比赛也印象深刻。“因为她生性好动,所以我对于她能够坐这么长的时间感到不可思议。能够把女儿这方面的才能展示给大家让我很高兴,我就知道她不同凡响,同时我也为她能够实现自我而骄傲”

And the 5-year-old champion is feeling pretty great about the upcoming competition, too.

同时这个5岁的小冠军对于即将到来的比赛也自信满满。
