来自拉丁语 satis,足够的，满足的，词源同 sate,使满足。-ate,使。
- satiate:  Like satisfy, satiate comes from Latin satis ‘enough’, a descendant of the same Indo-European base that produced English sad and sated. Satis formed the basis of a verb satiāre ‘give enough or too much’, which was originally taken over by English in the former of these senses, virtually the equivalent of satisfy, but since the 17th century this has been gradually pushed aside by the more opprobrious ‘give too much, surfeit’. From the same source come satiable  and satiety .
