“Groundbreaking” is one of those words that is easy to get a visual image for. The origin of the word is from when builders go to a construction site for the first day of construction, there is sometimes a small ceremony, where they break the ground before they begin the new construction.
From this image, you can get the idea that something “groundbreaking” is about breaking up old things in order to do something new. Something that is groundbreaking is providing new and positive ideas, and influencing the way people think about things. Some of the things that we often call “groundbreaking” are new and interesting things like: research, art, books, movies, even political ideas can be groundbreaking. Have there been any groundbreaking ideas in Japan recently?
