他殺的英文是 homicide [ˋhɑmə͵saɪd ]

這個字可以拆解成兩部份: homo cide

homo 這個拉丁文的字首意思是 man (, 人類)

homi 是它在某些字裡的變化形

(: 但在 homosexual (同性戀的) , 字首 homos 是希臘文 one and the same 的意思)

cide 這個字根就是 的意思, 從它衍生出很多字(名詞)

suicide [ˋsuə͵saɪd ] 自殺

pesticide [ˋpɛstɪ͵saɪd ] 殺蟲劑

genocide [ˋdʒɛnə͵saɪd ] 種族屠殺, 集體屠殺

patricide [ˋpætrɪ͵saɪd ] 弒父行為, 弒父者

matricide [ˋmetrə͵saɪd ] 弒母行為, 弒母者

...” 的行為時, cide 的字通常動詞是搭配 commit (犯下...罪行)

比如: One of my friends committed suicide last year. (去年我有個朋友自殺了)

The man committed homicide. (這名男子殺了人)

另外造些 homicide 的句子:

Her death was ruled a homicide. (她的死亡被判定為他殺)

The police ruled her death a homicide. (警方判定她的死為他殺)

Investigation of the homicide is ongoing. (這椿他殺案的調查仍在進行中)

(: 圖片裡的 Homicide: Life on the Street 是個美國影集的名稱

美國警局有個部門專管 homicide )
