swarmyoudaoicibaDictYouDict[swarm 词源字典]
swarm: Swarm ‘group of insects’ [OE] and swarm ‘climb’ [16] are distinct words. The former comes from a prehistoric Germanic *swarmaz, which also produced German schwarm, and is closely related to Dutch swerm, Swedish svärm, and Danish sværm. It may go back ultimately to an Indo-European base which also lay behind Latin susurrus ‘hum’ and Sanskrit svárati ‘it sounds’. The origins of swarm ‘climb’ are not known.
