Old Norse[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Germanic *standaną. The verb occurred in two forms within Germanic, but only this form is attested in Old Norse sources. In the east, this form existed side by side with unattested *stá (from which Swedish stå), from Proto-Germanic *stāną. Both ultimately derive from the same Proto-Indo-European *steh₂-.
