英文词源


tangerine
tangerine: [18] The tangerine was originally exported to Britain, in the 1840s, from the Moroccan port of Tangier, and so it was called the Tangerine orange (Tangerine started life as an adjective meaning ‘of Tangier’: ‘an old Tangerine captain with a wooden leg’, Joseph Addison, Tatler 1710). This was soon shortened to tangerine. It was first used as a colour term at the end of the 19th century.
tangerine (n.)
1842, from tangerine orange (1820) "an orange from Tangier," seaport in northern Morocco, from which it was imported to Britain originally. As an adjective meaning "from Tangier," attested from 1710, probably from Spanish tangerino. As a color name, attested from 1899.
