  Alma Mater 母校

  Alma mater refers either to a school one attended, or to that school's song.

  Matrimony 婚姻

  Matrimony joins two people, but that pairing is rooted in one word: mother.

  婚姻让两个人走到一起,不过这种联姻源自于一个词:mother(母亲)。

  Matrimony comes from mater, Latin for "mother." This reflects the traditional role of marriage in legalizing motherhood – allowing women to produce legitimate children and heirs.

  Matrimony也源自于拉丁语中的mater(母亲)一词。这也反应了母系合法化过程中婚姻的传统地位,即婚姻让女人能够繁衍合法的子嗣。

  Matter 物质

  The fact of the matter is this: the Latin word for "mother," mater, is this word's distant ancestor.

  Matter一词怎么会出现在这里?事情是这样的,拉丁语中的mater(母亲)一词是matter一词的远祖。

  Mater was shaped into materia, meaning "physical substance" or "matter." Materia eventually developed into matter.

  Mater一词后来演化成materia,即“物质”。而materia一词最终演化成了matter这个词。

  Why did mother lead to matter? The connection is uncertain, but perhaps it's because matter is the substance from which something is made; and it is mother from which we all are made.

  “母亲”和“物质”之间有什么因果关系呢?答案尚不明确。或许因为物质是构成所有事物的成分,也是我们所有人成形之源头吧。
