    Carpet:

    The earliest English carpet was a tablecloth or bedspread. The word's use for a floor covering dates from around the 1400s. Carpet is from the Latin carpere (to pluck or pull to pieces)--early carpets, especially in poor households, would have been made from old clothes. Harvest (the plucking of crops) is from the same root, as is the German Herbst (autumn).

    中文:

    最早是桌巾、床罩的意思。從1400年左右開始使用地毯這個解釋。carpet起源地是拉丁的(剪一小塊布)--早期貧困的家庭,就把不要的舊衣服剪一小塊布拿來用。久而久之就變成地毯這個解釋。收割harvest這個單字的來源也是跟carpet一樣。

    不知道…這個是不是你所想要的答案^^a

    附上一個網站,是美國的,全都是英文! 裡面可以查很多單字的來源…可以去看看唷^0^

    可是發問者問的是 carpet 這個字的原由,不是地毯的原由吧。

    你在土耳其看到的應該還是英文吧

    土文的地毯並不是這樣說的喔

    The hand-knotted pile carpet probably originated in Mongolia or Turkestan between the 4th and 2nd millennium BC. Carpet-making was introduced to Spain in 10th century by the Moors. The Crusades brought Turkish carpets to all of Europe, where they were primarily hung on walls or used on tables. Only with the opening of trade routes in the 17th century were significant numbers of Persian rugs introduced to Western Europe.

    就是源於蒙古或土耳其那邊喔!!
