Uni-,mono- 中英文意思 one(单一,单独)PPT

汉:来源于拉丁语,意为“one”,在元音字母前i脱落。

英:

mono-

word-forming element meaning “one, alone; containing one (atom, etc.),” from Gk. mono-, comb. form of monos “single, alone,” from PIE root *men- “small, isolated” (cf. Gk. manos “rare, sparse,” Armenian manr “thin, slender, small,” and perhaps English minnow).

uni-

word-forming element meaning “having one only,” from L. uni-, comb. form of unus (see one).
