house (n.)

古英语 hus “住所, 庇护所, 设计用于居住的建筑”, 来自于原日耳曼语 *hūsan (来源也是古北欧语, 古弗里斯兰语 hus, 荷兰语 huis, 德语 Haus), 来源不明, 可能与 hide (v.) [OED]的词根有关. 在哥特语中只有 gudhus “神庙”, 字面意思是“神屋”; 哥特语中“房子” 的常用词是根据OED razn.

意思是“家庭, 包括祖先和后代, 特别是如果高贵” 是从11世纪. 黄道十二宫的意义是第一次被证明14世纪后期的立法意义(1540年代) 是从建筑物中的身体满足转移. 意思是“剧院里的观众” 来自16世纪60年代(从剧院本身转来, playhouse). “营业场所” 的含义是1580年代. 专门的学院和大学的意义(1530年代) 也适用于建筑物和学生的统称, 这种双重意义更早地出现在指宗教教团时(14世纪末). 作为一种舞厅DJ音乐风格, 可能来自 Warehouse, 据说这种风格起源于芝加哥的一家夜总会.

play house 是1871年的; 作为暗示“做爱, 窝棚”, 1968年. House arrest 1936年首次考证. House-painter 是来自1680年代. House-raising (n.) 是从1704年开始的. On the house “自由” 出自1889年. House and home 已从13世纪开始连词成对.

And the Prophet Isaiah the sonne of Amos came to him, and saide vnto him, Thus saith the Lord, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not liue. [II Kings xx. 1, version of 1611]
