magazine (n.)

15世纪80年代,"仓库,储存货物,特别是军用弹药的地方",来自法语 magasin "仓库,仓库,商店"(15世纪),来自意大利语 magazzino ,来自阿拉伯语 makhazinmakhzan "仓库"的复数(来源于西班牙语 almacén "仓库,杂志"),来自 khazana "储存起来"。原义几乎已经过时。意为"连发步枪的弹仓",到1868年;意为"存放弹匣的箱子",到1892年。

"包含杂文的期刊"的含义可追溯到1731年出版的第一份期刊 Gentleman's Magazine ,该期刊之所以如此称呼,是因为早先该词被用于印刷的军需品和信息清单,或者在一个形象的意义上,因为该出版物是一个信息的"仓库"(最初是书籍,1630年代)。
