3. from Old French posicion "position, supposition" (Modern French position).
- position:  Position comes via Old French from Latin positiō, a noun formed from posit-, the past participial stem of Latin pōnere ‘put, place’. This was also the source of English posit , positive  (which etymologically means ‘placed down, laid down’, hence ‘emphatically asserted’), post (in the senses ‘mail’ and ‘job’), and posture .
And in addition it lies behind a wealth of English verbs (compose, depose, dispose , expose , impose, interpose , oppose, repose, suppose, transpose , etc) whose form underwent alteration by association with late Latin pausāre ‘stop’ (see POSE); postpone exceptionally has retained its link with pōnere.
