fun (n.)

"dission, amusement, mirthful sport",1727年,更早的"a cheat, trick"(18世纪),来自动词 fun (1680年代)"to cheat, hoax",起源不明,可能是中英文 fonnen "befool"(15世纪;见 fond )的变体。18世纪记录很少,被约翰逊污蔑为"低腔词"。较早的意义保留在短语 to make fun of (1737)和 funny money "假钞"(1938,虽然这个词的使用可能更多是为了押韵)。另见 funny . Fun and games "mirthful carry-on"是1906年的。
