注释
“Don't worry” is a much milder injunction than it once would have been, for the word worry has softened its sense greatly over the course of its history. Its Old English ancestor, wyrgan, meant “to strangle.” Its Middle English descendant, worien, kept this sense and developed the new sense “to grasp by the throat with the teeth and lacerate” or “to kill or injure by biting and shaking.” This is the way wolves or dogs might attack sheep, for example. In the 16th century worry began to be used in the sense “to harass, as by rough treatment or attack,” or “to assault verbally,” and in the 17th century the word took on the sense “to bother, distress, or persecute.” It was a small step from this sense to the main modern senses “to cause to feel anxious or distressed” and “to feel troubled or uneasy,” first recorded in the 19th century.
与过去相比,“别担心”这句话的命令意味减少了许多,因为随着历史的变迁worry 这个词的“攻击性”意味大大削弱了。 其古英语中的前身wyrgan, 意为“扼杀”。 在中世纪英语中的worien 保留了这个意思并衍生出一个新意思“用牙齿咬住喉咙并且撕裂”或“咬住并来回甩动以杀死或伤害”。 例如,这是狼或狗袭击羊的方式。16世纪,worry 开始含有“以粗暴手段或袭击方式来骚扰”,“口头攻击”的意思, 到了17世纪这个词产生了“干扰、使焦虑和烦扰”的意思。19世纪,这个词义向前发展了一点,产生了适用于当代的主要意思“使感到焦虑或痛苦”和“感到烦恼或不安”

参考词汇

(1)

worry,upset这两个词一般英汉词典里都有“使烦恼”的意思,但它们只是近义词。

(2)

worry的同义词为annoy,而upset的同义词为overturn。worry的含义不断地侵袭或刺激,并且强调把牺牲品逼到绝望的地步
Ted Robinson has been worried all the week.
特德·罗宾逊整整一个星期以来一直被弄得焦躁不安。
The child has a bad cough and it rather worries her.
她的孩子咳得很厉害,这使得她很着急。

(3)

注:worry的原义是动物尤其是狗用牙齿等撕咬它的牺牲品。
The dog is worrying the rat.
那只狗在撕咬老鼠。

(4)

而upset所表示的“使烦恼”通常是由于取消了已经定下来的事情所造成的。例如,你本来打算要去做某事,由于某种原因而不能去做了,这时你感到的“烦恼”应当用upset来表达。
I had just lost £50 and I felt very upset.
我刚丢失了50英镑钱,因此我感到非常不安。
The enemy's plans were upset.
敌人的计划打乱了。

(5)

注:upset除了表示精神方面的“烦躁”外,也可以表示肉体的不适。
You'll upset your stomach if you eat too much rich food.
你如果吃了太多的油腻食物,会把胃弄得不舒服的。

(6)

upset的原义是打翻。
The cat bas upset the saucer of milk.
猫把那碟子牛奶打翻了。
