来自PIE*per, 向前，穿过，词源同for, forth. 与for在中古英语时期才产生词义上的差别。
- fore (adv., prep.)
- Old English fore (prep.) "before, in front of, in presence of; because of, for the sake of; earlier in time; instead of;" as an adverb, "before, previously, formerly, once," from Proto-Germanic *fura "before" (cognates: Old Saxon fora, Old Frisian fara, Old High German fora, German vor, Danish for, Old Norse fyrr, Gothic faiura "for"), from PIE *prae-, extended form of root *per- (1) "forward, through" (see per).
Now displaced by before. In nautical use, "toward the bows of the ship." Merged from 13c. with the abbreviated forms of afore and before and thus formerly often written 'fore. As a noun, "the front," from 1630s. The warning cry in golf is first recorded 1878, probably a contraction of before.
- fore (adj.)
- mid-15c., "forward;" late 15c., "former, earlier;" early 16c., "situated at the front;" all senses apparently from fore- compounds, which frequently were written as two words in Middle English.
- 1. This factor will come increasingly to the fore as election day nears.
- 2. Our yacht was well equipped with two double cabins fore and aft.
- 3. The fore end tube plate of the condenser has cracked beyond repair.
- 4. Your seat is in the fore part of the aircraft.
