Pense numa palavra esquisita

in #pt9 months ago (edited)

Se tem uma palavra esquisita na língua portuguesa essa palavra é a “esquisito”. E o porquê de eu achar isso vou explicar agora.

Se formos analisar etimologicamente a palavra esquisito veremos que ela deriva da palavra latina exquisitus, que por sua vez veio de ex quaero que significa algo distinto, procurado, desejado.

E esse significado original do latim de certa forma se manteve nas suas palavras cognatas de outras línguas como vemos abaixo:

  • Espanhol exquisito: de singular e extraordinária qualidade, requintado.
  • Francês exquis: Que é procurado, escolhido entre o que existe de mais delicado para o gosto.
  • Inglês exquisite: extremamente belo e feito muito primorosamente, requintado.

Percebe-se que o significado da palavra manteve o seu caráter positivo, de algo belo e requintado. Porém no português essa palavra passou a ter um caráter negativo, pejorativo. Esquisito pra nós significa algo bizarro, algo incomum mas com um tom negativo. Algo até meio maluco, mais ou menos como o “weird” do inglês.

Ou seja, enquanto na maioria das outras línguas as cognatas mantiveram o seu significado original de algo positivo, no português por algum motivo ela passou a ter um caráter negativo e pejorativo. Só não me pergunte o porquê nem a partir de quando isso passou a acontecer na nossa língua. Só sei que acho tudo isso muito esquisito!
