注释
To the casual eye testy and heady seem to have no connection until one becomes less casual and notes that both words refer to the head. The head in heady is easy to see both in the form of the word and in the meanings of the word. The earliest sense, first recorded in a work composed before 1382, is “headlong, headstrong,” which is clearly a “head” sense but so is the better known current sense “apt to go to the head, intoxicating.” To see the head in testy, we must look back to the Old French word testu, the source of our word. Testu is derived from the Old French word teste, “head” (Modern French tête ). In English testy developed another sense, “aggressive, contentious,” which passed into the sense we are familiar with, “irritable.”
粗看testy 和 heady 似乎没有联系, 直到一个人较为仔细才注意到两个词都指头部。heady 中的 head 很容易看出在形式与意义上均相似。 其最早的意义,首次记录于1382年以前的一部著作中,指“轻率的,顽固的”,显然是“头部”的意思,但现在更为人知的意思是“能入脑的;陶醉的”。而要看head 在 testy 中, 我们必须追溯到古法语testu ,我们这个词的词源。 Testu 源于古法语词 teste ,“头部”(现代法语 tete )。 在英语中,testy 所发展的另一层意思(“好战的,争论的”)转化成了我们熟悉的意思(“暴躁的”)
