2. ferv- "boil, glow" (谐音“沸温, 沸而温”)----沸腾而且温度很高.
- fervent:  Fervent comes from the present participle of Latin fervēre ‘boil’. This verb also produced English effervescent  and comfrey , a plant-name which means literally ‘boil together’, and moreover its derivative fermentum led to English ferment . It goes back ultimately to the Indo-European base *bhreu- or *bhru-, from which English also gets brew, broth, and fry, and possibly bread and burn.
