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 unwisunsnotorungleaw ),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。
