- stare: [OE] The etymological notion underlying stare is of ‘fixity’ or ‘rigidity’. It goes back ultimately to the prehistoric Germanic base *star-, *ster- ‘be rigid’, which also produced English starch , stark [OE], starve (originally ‘be stiff’, hence ‘die’), stern ‘severe’, and stork (etymologically the ‘stiff’-legged bird). Thus to stare is to ‘look fixedly’. (Greek stereós ‘solid’, source of English stereo, came from the same Indo-European base as produced *ster-.)
=> starch, stark, starve, stereo, stern, stork
- stare (v.)
- Old English starian "to stare, gaze, look fixedly at," from Proto-Germanic *staren "be rigid" (cognates: Old Norse stara, Middle Low German and Middle Dutch staren, Old High German staren, German starren "to stare at;" German starren "to stiffen," starr "stiff;" Old Norse storr "proud;" Old High German storren "to stand out, project;" Gothic andstaurran "to be obstinate"), from PIE root *ster- (1) "strong, firm, stiff, rigid" (see stereo- and compare torpor).
Not originally implying rudeness. To stare (someone) down is from 1848. Related: Stared; staring.
