perceive (v.)

14世纪 , perceiven ,"成为意识,获得知识",特别是"通过直接经验来认识",经英法 parceif ,旧北法 *perceivre (旧法语 perçoivre )"感知,注意,看到。认识,理解,"来自拉丁文 percipere "获得,收集,完全抓住,占有,"也有,形象地讲,"用心灵把握,学习,理解,"字面意思是"完全占有,"来自 per "彻底"(见 per )+ capere "掌握,拿取,"来自PIE根 *kap- "掌握。"

取代了古英语 ongietan 。这两个拉丁语的意义都在古法语中,不过现代法语的主要意义 percevoir ,是字面意义,"接受、收取"(租金、税金等),而英语几乎都是在隐喻意义上使用这个词。相关链接: Perceived ; perceiving .
