1. hare "野兔",做动词讲是“飞跑”之意,因为野兔跑得很快,但是 hare (v.) 的古义并不是“飞跑”,而是“harry, harass, frighten”,这是源于 harry 或者与 harry 同源,因此可以说 hare (v.) 是先受 harry 的影响,后受到 hare (n.) 的影响,在这两个单词的影响下就变成了如今的含义,野兔在受到骚扰、惊吓的情况下肯定会飞跑逃命的。
2. hare (v.) 今义“飞跑”=> 古义:harry, harass, frighten => har-"harry, harass, frighten": harry (双写r加-y), harass.
3. 因此 harry 与 harass 是同源近义词,都表示骚扰、侵扰;使烦恼、苦恼。
4. harrow <====> harass.
harass 侵扰,骚扰

来自法语harer,纵狗咬人,纵狗行凶,可能来自拟声词,纵狗的声音。引申词义侵扰,骚扰。

harass (v.)
1610s, "to lay waste, devastate" (obsolete); 1620s, "to vex by repeated attacks," from French harasser "tire out, vex" (16c.), which is of uncertain origin; possibly from Old French harer "stir up, provoke; set a dog on," and perhaps blended with Old French harier "to harry, draw, drag" [Barnhart]. Related: Harassed; harassing.
