英 ['etɪket; etɪ'ket]
CET6+ TEM8 IELTS GRE TOEFL
1. ticket => etiquette.
2. 该词原指“标签”，“签条”。其实英语单词 ticket (票，标签) 亦源于此。因为法国以前在宫廷盛宴时会发给宾客一张称为 etiquette 的纸张或卡片，上面写着应遵循的各种礼节、礼仪，由此后来就转指、引申为：礼节、礼仪。
- etiquette:  Etiquette is, almost literally, ‘just the ticket’. The primary meanings of French étiquette are ‘ticket’ and ‘label’ – and indeed it is the source of English ticket. A particular application of it in former times was to a small card which had written or printed on it directions as to how to behave properly at court – hence it came to mean ‘prescribed code of social behaviour’.
- etiquette (n.)
- 1750, from French étiquette "prescribed behavior," from Old French estiquette "label, ticket" (see ticket (n.)).
The sense development in French perhaps is from small cards written or printed with instructions for how to behave properly at court (compare Italian etichetta, Spanish etiqueta), and/or from behavior instructions written on a soldier's billet for lodgings (the main sense of the Old French word).
