generous

字源:1588, from M.Fr. généreux (fem. généreuse), from L. generosus " of noble birth ," from genus (gen. generis) "race, stock" (see genus). Originally "of noble birth," secondary senses of "unselfish" and "plentiful" were both present in Fr. and perhaps in Latin.

generous這個字,是由字根gen"生"所組合而成,在拉丁文中它指的是"of noble birth 屬於高貴的出生的",而後來演變成有慷慨大方之意"unselfish, plentiful"

 

 

 

 

 

 

genesis

review (前面加個con意思又不太一樣了唷@@)

con-geni-al     adj.意氣相投的   [ suited or adapted in spirit, feeling, temper, etc ]

con-gen-i-tal   adj.天生的(ex.病等)  [ of or relating to a condition that is present at birth ]

(a congenital heart defect)

其實這兩個字來源有點不同唷

congenial  -->  con +  geni[us]  (n.天才,引申成才能)  +  al

--> 有共同才能的-->意氣相投的

 

congenital  -->  con  + gen (生)  +  i  +  tal -->生下來就有的-->先天的

(加強語氣)
