    如果要表示 "某事件或某事物的起源是可回溯自 . . . " 的意思的話,就我所知,常用的就是這三個片語了。

    還有另外的片語則是表示 "某事某物源自於 . . . ",那應該是寫成:

    A is derived from B

    A derives from B

    A originates from B

    A comes from B

    A develops/evolves from B

    A has its origins/roots in B

    The phrase is derived from a Greek myth.

    (這個片語源自於一則希臘神話)

    The phrase can be traced back to a Greek myth.

    (這個片語的來源可回溯自希臘神話)

    兩者意思其實差不多,只是焦點不同罷了,還是略有差異。

    in retrospect = retrospectively (adv.)

    backward-looking (adj.)

    look back on (v. phr.)

    注意詞性, 希望是你要的答案喲!
