Ancient Greek[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Unclear. Some have argued for a Proto-Indo-European *skʷel-, based on Aeolic forms, but this is suspect. Perhaps related to Proto-Germanic *stallijaną (to put, position), from Proto-Indo-European *stel- (to place, put, post, stand), but there is a lacking of cognates with the same semantic thrust.
