词源(Etymology)

From Middle English colour, color, borrowed from Anglo-Norman colur, from Old French colour, color, from Latin color, from Old Latin colos (covering), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱel- (to cover, conceal). Akin to Latin cēlō (I hide, conceal), Old English helan ("to conceal, cover, hide"; see hele). Displaced Middle English blee (color), from Old English blēo. More at blee. Also partially replaced Old English hīw (color) and its descendants, which is less often used in this sense. Compare also Dutch kleur (color), German Low German Klöör, Kleur, Kulöör, Kuleur (color), Danish kulør (color), Norwegian Bokmål kulør (color), Norwegian Nynorsk kulør (color), Swedish kulör (color), Old Norse kólorr (color), Volapük köl (color). Doublet of couleur.

In the US, the spelling color is used to match the spelling of the word's Latin etymon, and to make all derivatives consistent (colorimeter, coloration, colorize, colorless, etc). Elsewhere in the English-speaking world, the spelling colour has been retained.

用法注意(Usage notes)

The late Anglo-Norman colour, which is the standard UK spelling, has been the usual spelling in Britain since the 14th century and was chosen by Dr. Johnson's Dictionary of the English Language (1755) along with other Anglo-Norman spellings such as favour, honour, etc. The Latin spelling color was occasionally used from the 15th century onward, mainly due to Latin influence; it was lemmatized by Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language (1828), along with favor, honor, etc., and is currently the standard US spelling.

In Canada, colour is preferred, but color is not unknown; in Australia, -our endings are the standard, although -or endings had some currency in the past and are still sporadically found in some regions. In New Zealand and South Africa, -our endings are the standard.
