cognate Icelandic
Quote:
stað/fastur adj ( f -föst)
steadfast, firm


staðr - place ( cognate in your stead, homestead, Stadt, stasis, stand)
fast - hard . Attached, immovable (in English this migrated to almost an opposite meaning - fast = secure, immovable, strong (stuck fast, fasten, fast friends). To run strongly = to run quickly . Fast >> quick.
