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.
