- conjugal[conjugal 词源字典]
- conjugal:  The notion underlying conjugal is of ‘joining together’. It comes from Latin conjugālis, an adjective derived from conjux ‘spouse’. This is turn was derived from conjugāre ‘join together (in marriage)’, a compound verb formed from the prefix com- ‘together’ and jugāre ‘yoke’ (a derivative of jugum ‘yoke’, which is related to English yoke and yoga). (The grammatical connotations of English conjugate  arise from the notion of a ‘connected’ set of verb forms.) The base of jugum, *jug-, also produced jungere ‘join’, whose derivative conjungere ‘join together’ is responsible for the parallel set of English words conjoin , conjunct , and conjunction .
