integrate (v.)

1630年代, “使(某物) 成为整体, 把各部分汇集在一起”, 来自拉丁文 integratus, integrare “使整体” 的过去分词, 来自 integer “整体的, 完整的”, 比喻“未受污染的, 正直的”, 字面意思是“未受污染的”, 来自 in- “不” (见 in- (1) ). + tangere 的根“触摸”, 从PIE根 *tag- “触摸, 处理”.

意思是“把部分或元素放在一起, 组合成一个整体”, 来自1802年. “种族隔离” 的含义(1940年) 可能是由 integration 的后置形式. 相关链接: Integrated; integrating.
