learn (v.)

古英语 leornian "获得知识,受到熏陶;学习、阅读、思考",来自于原日耳曼语 *lisnojanan (同源词。古弗里斯兰语 lernia ,中荷兰语 leeren ,荷兰语 leren ,古高德语 lernen ,德语 lernen "学习",哥特语 lais "我知道"),其基本意义是"跟随或找到轨道",来自PIE根 *lois- "沟渠、轨道"。它与德语 Gleis "轨道"和古英语 læst "脚底板"有关(见 last (n.1))。

自13世纪作"听闻,确定"。转折用法( He learned me (how) to read ),现在被认为是粗俗的(除了在反身表达中, I learn English ),从13世纪到19世纪初都是可以接受的。它保留在过去分词形容词 learned "通过学习获得知识"。古英语也有 læran "教"(见 lere )。相关链接: Learning .
