词源1(Etymology 1)

From Middle English mount, munt, from Old English munt, from Latin mons (a hill, mountain), from a root seen also in ēmineō (I project, I protrude) (English eminent).

名词(Noun)

mount (plural mounts)

  1. A hill or mountain.
  2. (palmistry) Any of seven fleshy prominences in the palm of the hand, taken to represent the influences of various heavenly bodies.

  3. (obsolete) A bulwark for offence or defence; a mound.
  4. (obsolete) A bank; a fund.
  5. (heraldry) A green hillock in the base of a shield.
用法注意(Usage notes)

As with the names of rivers and lakes, the names of mountains are typically formed by adding the word before or after the unique term. Mount is used in situations where the word precedes the unique term: Mount Everest, Mount Rushmore, Mount Tai. Except in the misunderstood translation of foreign names (as with China's Mount Hua), the terms used with mount will therefore usually be nouns: Mount Olympus but Rugged Mountain and Crowfoot Mountain. It thus corresponds to the earlier the mount or mountain of ~.

Mount is no longer used as a generic synonym for mountain except in poetry and other literary contexts. An example is the fossilized form within the phrase Sermon on the Mount.
