- ignore[ignore 词源字典]
- ignore:  The Latin verb for ‘not know’, and hence ‘disregard’, was īgnōrāre, which was formed with a negative prefix from the stem gnō- ‘know’ (ultimate source also of English narrate). From it English got ignore, and from its derivative īgnōrantia the noun ignorance . Its first person present plural was īgnōrāmus ‘we do not know’. This was originally used in English in the 16th century as a legal term, in the sense ‘we ignore’, used by a Grand Jury in rejecting an indictment for lack of evidence. Not until the early 17th century was it applied to an ‘ignorant person’.
