- stanza:  Etymologically, a stanza is a place where one ‘stands’ or stops. The word was borrowed from Italian stanza, a descendant of Vulgar Latin *stantia ‘standing, stopping-place’, which in turn was derived from the present participle of Latin stāre ‘stand’ (source of English stage, state, station, etc). Its application to a ‘verse of poetry’ arose in Italian from the notion of ‘stopping’ at the end of a section. Stanza was borrowed into French as stance, from which English gets stance .
=> stance, stand, state, station
