来自古法语 cerchier,搜查，搜索，来自拉丁语 circare,搜查，绕圈，来自 circus,圈，环，词源 同 circus,recherche.
- search:  Etymologically, search denotes ‘going round in a circle’ – for its ultimate source is Latin circus ‘circle’ (source of English circle and circus). From this was derived the verb circāre ‘go round’, which by the time it had reached Old French as cerchier had acquired connotations of ‘examining’ or ‘exploring’. English took it over via Anglo-Norman sercher. (It is no relation, incidentally, to English seek.)
=> circle, circus
