来自古英语 throte,喉咙，来自 Proto-Germanic*thrut,喉咙，来自 PIE*trud,膨胀，鼓起，词源 同 throttle.
- throat: [OE] Throat comes from a prehistoric Germanic base *thrut- or *thrūt-. This also produced Old English thrūtian ‘swell’, and a related base *strut- was the source of the now defunct Middle English strouten ‘bulge, swell’ (not to mention Dutch strot ‘throat’), so it has been speculated that the underlying etymological meaning of throat is ‘swollen part’ – an allusion no doubt to the bulge of the Adam’s apple. Throttle  is probably a derivative of throat.
- throat (n.)
- Old English þrote (implied in þrotbolla "the Adam's apple, larynx," literally "throat boll"), related to þrutian "to swell," from Proto-Germanic *thrut- (cognates: Old High German drozza, German Drossel, Old Saxon strota, Middle Dutch strote, Dutch strot "throat"), of uncertain origin. Italian strozza "throat," strozzare "to strangle" are Germanic loan-words. College slang for "competitive student" is 1970s, from cutthroat.
