注释
Caesar's division of Gaul into three parts used to be known by every child who learned Latin, but perhaps even classically trained schoolchildren did not always realize that in spite of the conquest of Gaul by the Romans, some Gaulish elements lived on, such as our word frown. This word is descended from Gaulish, a Celtic language that is related to Welsh and Irish. Frown, first recorded in Middle English in a work composed around 1395, came from Old French froigner, which meant “to turn up one's nose.” The Old French word was derived from frogne, “grimace,” which in turn came from the hypothetical Gaulish word .frogna, “nose,” which is related to Welsh ffroen, “nose,” and Old Irish sr?, “nose.”
每一个学拉丁文的孩子都知道凯撒三分高卢,但如果不是罗马人征服高卢,高卢语中许多东西至今依然存在,例如frown ,恐怕即使在学校里按传统方式教育的孩子都不可能知道这一点了。 此词来自高卢语,一种与威尔士语和爱尔兰语有关的凯尔特语。Frown, 首先见于中世纪一本约1359年的英语书,来自古法语froigner, 意为“皱起某人的鼻子”。 古法语词则源自frogne, “鬼脸,” 源自臆测的高卢词·frogna, 意为“鼻子”, 与威尔士语ffroen, “鼻子”和与古爱尔兰语 sron 意为“鼻子”有关
