dance (v.)

14世纪 , dauncen ,"随着音乐有节奏地移动身体或脚步",来自古法语 dancier ( 12世纪,现代法语 danser ),其来源不明,可能来自低法兰克语 *dintjan ,类似于古弗里斯兰语 dintje "颤抖、颤抖"。通过法国在艺术和社会中的影响,从西班牙到俄罗斯,它已经成为这一活动的主要词汇(意大利语 danzare ,西班牙语 danzar ,罗马尼亚语 dansa ,瑞典语 dansa ,德语 tanzen, 现代俄语 t ancevat' )。

In part the loanword from French is used mainly with reference to fashionable dancing while the older native word persists in use with reference to folk-dancing, as definitively Russ. pljasat' vs. tancovat' [Carl Darling Buck, "A Dictionary of Selected Synonyms in the Principal Indo-European Languages," 1949].

在英语中,它取代了古英语 sealtian ,它本身是从拉丁语 saltare "跳舞"借来的,经常性的 salire "跳跃"(见 salient (adj.);"跳舞"一词经常从"跳跃、跳跃"的词中衍生出来)。古英语中用于该活动的原生词包括 tumbian (见 tumble (v.)) , hoppian (见 hop (v.1))。相关词: Danced ; dancing

意思是"以有规律或不规律的步子跳跃或跳动,作为某种情感的表达",来自14世纪末的无生命的东西,"以不规律的动作灵活或快速移动",1560年代。"给跳舞的动作"的转义词来自16世纪。给 dance attendance "趋炎附势

dance (n.)

14世纪 , dance, daunce ,"连续的舞步和动作,通常由音乐伴奏引导",也是"跳舞的聚会",来自 dance (v.)。14世纪末起为"要跳舞的曲子"。

有很多形象化的意义:在中世纪英语中, the olde daunce 是"整个业务", the daunce is don 完全相当于现代俚语 the jig is up 。对 lead (someone) a dance "导致在一个疲惫的,令人费解的,或令人失望的课程"是从1520年代。 Dance-band 是从1908年。 dance-floor 从1863年。 dance-hall 从1823年。
