From Old High German stān, stēn, from Proto-Germanic *stāną. The 2nd and 3rd persons singular of the present have -ee- from northern Old High German -ei-, in keeping with the Proto-Germanic irregular conjugation. The same alternation is found throughout Central Franconian as well as in Limburgish and Low German. The infinitive is from stān, while the other present forms are from stēn. This latter alternation is confined to westernmost Moselle Franconian.
