stupid (adj.)

1540s, “心智迟钝, 缺乏普通的思维活动, 呆板, 无厘头,” 来自法语 stupide (16世纪), 直接来自拉丁语 stupidus “惊讶, 困惑; 呆板, 愚蠢”, 字面意思是“毫无意义的打击”, 来自 stupere “被惊呆, 惊讶, 困惑”, 来自PIE *stupe- “打击”, 来自根 *(s) teu- (1) “推, 棒, 敲, 打” (见 steep (adj.) ). 相关: Stupidly; stupidness.

这个概念的原生词包括与“明智” 一词的否定复合词(古英语 unwis, unsnotor, ungleaw), 也有 dol (见 dull (副词) ), 以及 dysig (见 dizzy (副词) ). Stupidstupor 及其“惊愕, 悲痛等” 的重音保留到18世纪中叶 stupid 与不太对立的 foolish 之间的区别大致与德语 törichtdumm 相似, 但在大多数欧洲语言中不存在.
