consider (v.)

14世纪晚期, “固定心思仔细研究, 冥想”, 也是“仔细查看, 仔细研究; 不要疏忽”, 来自古法语 considerer (13世纪) “反思, 考虑, 研究”, 来自拉丁语 considerare “仔细观察, 观察”, 可能字面意思是“观察星星”, 来自 com “一起, 一起” (见 con-) + sidus (属名 sideris) “天体, 星星, 星座” (见 sidereal) 的同化形式.

也许是导航的隐喻, 但更可能反映了罗马人对占星术占卜的痴迷. 然而, 塔克怀疑与 sidus, 因为它“很不适用 desiderare,” 并建议从英语 side 的PIE词根衍生而来, 意思是“伸展, 延伸”, 以及“四面勘察” 或“长居于此” 的全词意义.

源自1530年代为“以特定的眼光看待”. 相关链接: Considered; considering.
