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 .
