understand , , , , , . under

understand (v.) ( understandan - , , ); under - + standan - ; PIE *nter- - ,
Old English understandan "comprehend, grasp the idea of," probably literally "stand in the midst of," from under + standan "to stand" (see stand (v.)). If this is the meaning, the under is not the usual word meaning "beneath," but from Old English under, from PIE *nter- "between, among" (source also of Sanskrit antar "among, between," Latin inter "between, among," Greek entera "intestines;" see inter-).

1675:
To UNDERSTAND (under + standan, Sax., understehen, Teut.) , , (1826): , ; G. understand; Swed. understa; T. verstehen
