ghetto (n.)

1610年代,"犹太人被迫居住的城市的一部分",特别是在意大利,来自意大利语 ghetto "犹太人被限制居住的城市的一部分",来源不明。各种理论都将其追溯到。意第绪语 get "分离契约";威尼斯语 getto "铸造厂"的特殊用法(1516年该市犹太人区附近有一个); Egitto "埃及"的剪裁形式,来自拉丁语 Aegyptus (可能是为了纪念流亡);或意大利语 borghetto "城镇的一小部分"( borgo 的缩略语,源自日耳曼语;见 borough )。到1899年扩展到其他少数群体(特别是美国城市的黑人)的拥挤的城市街区。作为一个形容词,到1903年(现代俚语用法从1999年开始)。 Ghetto-blaster "大型便携式立体声卡带机"是1982年的。
