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 。
