just (adj.)

14世纪晚期, “在上帝眼中道德上正直, 正义” (“现在主要作为《圣经》中的古语” --OED); 也是“公平, 公正, 不偏不倚地处理一个人的事务”; 也是“合适, 适当, 符合标准或规则”; 也是“正当, 合理;” 来自古法语 juste “公正, 正义; 真诚” (12世纪), 直接来自拉丁语 iustus “正直, 正义, 公平. in accordance with law, lawful; true, proper; perfect, complete” (也是西班牙语和葡萄牙语 justo, 意大利语 giusto 的来源), 从 ius “a right”, 特别是“legal right, law” (见 jurist; 从拉丁语 ius 也来自英语 jury (n.), injury, 等).)

从15世纪起作“right-minded, good in intention”; 从15世纪初起作“legal, lawful, right in law”. 又作“精确, 精确; 以精确为标志或特征; 具有正确的尺寸” (14世纪末); 叙述, 计算等的“准确, 正确” (15世纪初). 音乐中的意义, “和谐纯正, 正确, 精确” 到1850年.

更通俗的拉丁语法律词 lex, 涵盖了具体的法律, 而不是法律的主体. 意为“正义的人或人; 基督” 的名词是14世纪末的(拉丁语中的中性形容词被用作名词, iustum, “什么是正确的或公正的” ).

just (adv.)

15世纪, “正是, 正是”; 15世纪末, “恰如其分, 贴切”; 16世纪, “立即”; 来自 just (形容词), 并与法语 juste (也可比较荷兰语 juist, 德语 just, 来自形容词) 的副词用法平行.

“精确” 在空间, 时间, 种类或程度上的原始意义; “精确地, 没有间隔, 偏差或变化” 在 just so “正是这样, 以这种方式” (1751), just as I thought, 等 ., 但这种意义衰落了, 就像它在一般的精确性词语中经常发生的那样(比较 anon, soon), 从“精确, 准确, 准时” 到“在一点之内; 有极小的但足够的差异; 几乎; 几乎是精确的;” 然后到16世纪60年代变成“仅仅, 勉强, 由或在一个狭窄的范围内(如 just missed). 因此 just now 如” 不久前“(16世纪80年代). 又作” 很近, 短时间内“(18世纪). 也有密集使用,” 相当“(到1855年).

Just-so story 是证明1902年在吉卜林, 来自 just so” 正是这样, 以这种方式“.
