英语(English)

Bibliothèque Mazarine, Paris

词源(Etymology)

Middle English librarie, from Anglo-Norman librarie, from Old French librairie, from Latin librarium (bookcase, chest for books), from librarius (concerning books), from liber (the inner bark of trees; paper, parchment, book), probably derived from a Proto-Indo-European base *leub(ʰ)- (to strip, to peel). Partially displaced native Middle English bochus, bochous (library, bookhouse) (from Old English bōchūs (library, bookhouse)). Romance cognates often mean “bookshop” instead: French librairie, Italian libreria, Spanish librería and Portuguese livraria. This is a relatively recent innovation (16th century in French), which ended up displacing the earlier sense.

发音(Pronunciation)

The non-RP UK pronunciation /ˈlaɪbɹi/ (whence the eye dialect spelling libry) exhibits haplology.
