value (n.)

14世纪, “相当于事物内在价值的价格;” 14世纪晚期, “某物有用或可估价的程度”, 来自古法语 value “价值, 价格, 道德价值; 地位, 名誉” (13世纪), 名词使用fem. 过去分词 valoir “be worth”, 来自拉丁语 valere “be strong, be well; be of value, be worth” (来自PIE根 *wal- “to be strong” ). “社会原则” 的意思从1918年开始考证, 据说是从绘画语言中借来的. Value judgment (1889年) 是德语 Werturteil 的借译.
