stroke 中风

这个单词意思实际很多,但都与strike有关,但“中风”怎讲?stroke,表act of striking。回到战乱不断且医疗水平很低的中世纪英国,在战场上被武器“strike”一下,即使是轻伤,也很可能死于伤口感染。外伤肉眼可见,中风呢?无力的人们只能认为中风患者“struck by God”。

stroke 击球,击打,一笔,一画

来自 strike 对词形式,引申词义击球,击打,笔画等。

stroke (n.)

"act of striking," c. 1300, probably from Old English *strac "stroke," from Proto-Germanic *straik- (source also of Middle Low German strek, German streich, Gothic striks "stroke"); see stroke (v.).

The meaning "mark of a pen" is from 1560s; that of "a striking of a clock" is from mid-15c. Sense of "feat, achievement" (as in stroke of luck, 1853) first found 1670s; the meaning "single pull of an oar or single movement of machinery" is from 1731. Meaning "apoplectic seizure" is from 1590s (originally the Stroke of God's Hand). Swimming sense is from 1800.

stroke (v.)

"pass the hand gently over," Old English stracian "to stroke," related to strican "pass over lightly," from Proto-Germanic *straik-, from PIE root *strig- "to stroke, rub, press" (see strigil). Figurative sense of "soothe, flatter" is recorded from 1510s. The noun meaning "a stroking movement of the hand" is recorded from 1630s. Related: Stroked; stroking.
