The origin of the term "calligraphy"
一词的由来

Calligraphy is the art of beautiful handwriting. The term may derive from the Greek words for “beauty” (kallos) and “to write” (graphein). It implies a sure knowledge of the correct form of letters along with the skill to make and properly order the various parts and proportions harmoniously. However, calligraphic work, as art, need not be legible in the usual sense of the word.
书法(calligraphy)指的是书写的美学艺术。calligraphy这个词可能来源于希腊语中的kallos(美)和graphein(书写)。它指的就是将正确的字母书写形式和书写技巧结合起来,可以使各个部分顺序合适、比例和谐。然而,书法作品作为一种艺术形式,通常不必写得如平时那么清晰易读。

Nonetheless, after the introduction of printing in Europe in the mid-15th century, a clear distinction arose between handwriting and more elaborate forms of scripts and lettering. In fact, new words meaning “calligraphy” entered most European languages around the end of the 16th century, and in English the word calligraphy did not appear until 1613.
然而,在15世纪中期欧洲引入印刷术之后,手写字与更为精细漂亮的文本字迹以及字体之间出现了明显的分化。事实上,在16世纪末,表示“书法”含义的词出现在大多数欧洲语言中,而在英语中,calligraphy这个词直到1613年才出现。
