bath (n.)

古英语 bæð "将身体浸泡在水、泥浆等中",也有"一定量的水等用于沐浴"的意思,来自于古日耳曼语 *badan (也是古弗里斯兰语 beth ,古撒克逊语 bath ,古北欧语 bað ,中荷兰语 bat ,德语 Bad ),来自于PIE根 *bhē- "温暖"+ *-thuz ,日耳曼语后缀表示"行为、过程、条件"(如 birthdeath )。词源意义是指加热,而不是浸泡。

英国萨默塞特的城市(古英语 Baðun )因其温泉而得名。 Bath salts 见证于1875年(朱利叶斯-布劳恩博士,《论浴池和水的治疗效果》)。 Bath-house 是1705年的; bath-towel 是1958年的。
