来自古法语 recovrer,回来，恢复，来自拉丁语 recuperare,恢复，重新获取，来自 re-,再，重 新，-cup,抓住，得到，词源同 capable,have,recuperate.该词与 re-cover 为不同词源。
- recover:  Recover and recuperate  are ultimately the same word. Both come from Latin recuperāre ‘recover, regain’, a compound verb based on the stem cup- ‘take’ (a variant of which produced capere ‘take’, source of English captive, capture, etc). Recuperate itself was acquired directly from the Latin verb’s past participle, whereas recover was routed via Old French recoverer. (Re-cover ‘cover again’, spelled similarly but pronounced differently, also dates from the 14th century.)
=> captive, capture, recuperate
- recover (v.)
- c. 1300, "to regain consciousness," from Anglo-French rekeverer (13c.), Old French recovrer "come back, return; regain health; procure, get again" (11c.), from Medieval Latin recuperare "to recover" (source of Spanish recobrar, Italian ricoverare; see recuperation). Meaning "to regain health or strength" is from early 14c.; sense of "to get (anything) back" is first attested mid-14c. Related: Recovered; recovering.
