- strict:  Strict was acquired direct from strictus, the past participle of Latin stringere ‘pull tight, tighten’ (source also of English prestige, strain, and stringent). The original literal sense ‘tight’ survived into English (‘She wildly breaketh from their strict embrace’, Shakespeare, Venus and Adonis 1592), but it has since given way to various metaphorical extensions.
Routed via Old French, strictus has given English strait, and English is also indebted to it for stress  (via the Vulgar Latin derivative *strictia) and stricture , not to mention prefixed forms such as constrain, constrict , distrain, distress, district, restrain, and restrict .
=> constrain, constrict, distrain, distress, district, prestige, restrain, restrict, strain, stress, stricture, stringent
