1. tread => trot.
来自古法语 troter,小跑，来自 Proto-Germanic*trott,小跑，衍生自*tred,踩踏，词源同 trade,tread.
- trot:  Trot’s closest English relative is probably tread. It was borrowed from Old French troter, which went back via Vulgar Latin *trottāre to a Frankish *trottōn. This seems to have been derived from the same Germanic base as produced English tread. The colloquial use of the noun for ‘diarrhoea’ dates from the early 19th century – originally in the singular, but since at least the early 20th century in the plural, the trots.
- trot (n.)
- "a gait faster than a walk and slower than a run," c. 1300, originally of horses, from Old French trot "a trot, trotting" (12c.), from troter "to trot, to go," from Frankish *trotton, from Proto-Germanic *trott- (cognates: Old High German trotton "to tread"), derivative of *tred- (see tread (v.)). The trots "diarrhea" is recorded from 1808 (compare the runs).
- trot (v.)
- "go at a quick, steady pace," late 14c., from Old French troter "to trot, to go," from Frankish *trotton (see trot (n.)). Italian trottare, Spanish trotar also are borrowed from Germanic. To trot (something) out originally (1838) was in reference to horses; figurative sense of "produce and display for admiration" is slang first recorded 1845. Related: Trotted; trotting.
- 1. As they started up again, the horse broke into a brisk trot.
