来自拉丁语 residere,坐下，休息，留下，居住，定居，来自 re-,向后，往回，sedere,坐下， 词源同 sit,sedentary.
- reside:  The -side of reside has no connection with English side. It comes from Latin sedēre ‘settle’ (source of English sedentary, session, etc and related to sit). Combination with the prefix re- ‘back’ produced residēre ‘settle back, remain in place, rest’, which passed into English via its present participle as resident ‘settling permanently in a place’ . Reside is either a back-formation from this or a borrowing from French résider.
The past participle of residēre was residuus, whose neuter form residuum was used as a noun meaning ‘that which settles back’, hence ‘that which is left behind’. It passed into English via Old French as residue .
