“汽车(automobile)”的由来



【编者按】 谈到“汽车”,人们的脑筋中会显现出浩繁分歧功效,外型及品牌各别的车辆。“汽车”这个词到底若何来的,我们可以从Wiki百科中可以找到一丝线索。 An automobile (via French from Greek auto, self and Latin mobilis moving, a vehicle that moves itself rather than being moved by another vehicle or animal) or motor car (usually shortened to just car) is a wheeled passenger vehicle that carries its own engine or motor. Most definitions of the term specify that automobiles are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. However, the term is far from precise because there are many types of vehicles that do similar tasks. 【中文注解】在英语中,“汽车(automobile)”这个单词是由两部门组成的,是经法语从希腊语中借过来的“auto”(本意本身的),以及由拉丁语“mobilis”(本意移动的)。是以从这个单词我们就不可贵出“汽车”的界说,即它是一种可以自立移动,不须要其他灵活车辆或动物牵引的车辆。“motor car”,或简称“Car”,是一种拥有本身的动员机及轮胎的乘用东西。它的年夜大都界说都特指在公路上行走,一般拥有4个轮胎,重要用于运载1-8名乘客而不是运载货色的车辆。事实上,汽车这个词的界说很难用精准的概念描写出来,由于实际生涯中有着各类各样分歧的灵活车辆,从事着类似的运输义务。 本文版权为盖世汽车所有,接待转载!请务必注明出处(盖世汽车)及作者。
