cure (n.1)

14世纪 ,"照顾,注意",来自拉丁文 cura "照顾,关心,麻烦",随着时间的推移,有许多形象化的延伸,如"学习;管理;教区牧师的办公室;情妇",也有"治愈的手段,成功地补救治疗疾病"(14世纪晚期),来自古拉丁文 coira- ,名词来源不明。意为"医疗",是14世纪晚期

cure (n.2)

"法国或法国某国的教区牧师",来自法语 curé (13世纪),来自中世纪拉丁语 curatus "负责照顾(灵魂)的人",来自拉丁语 curatus ,过去分词 curare "照顾"(见 cure (v.))。也可比较 curate (n.)。

cure (v.)

14世纪末,"恢复健康或健全的状态",来自古法语 curer ,直接来自拉丁语 curare "照顾",因此,在医学语言中,"医学治疗,治愈"(见 cure (n.1))。在指鱼、猪肉等时,"通过干燥、盐渍等方法准备保存",1743年已证明。相关内容: Cured ; curing

在欧洲语言中,大多数"治愈、疗养"的词原来适用于被治疗的人,但现在可以用来指疾病。相对来说,很少的词显示出与"医生"的词有古老的联系;典型的是,它们反而与"使整体"或"趋向"甚至"魔术师"的词有联系。法语 guérir (与意大利语 guarir ,古西班牙语 guarir )来自日耳曼语动词干,也见于哥特语 warjan ,古英语 wearian "抵挡、预防、防御"(见 warrant (n.))。
