Abstract

There are several reasons to suppose, that sw. sater 'forest-meadow', old norse setr, sxtr is an ieur. ro-stem, germ. ra-stem. Thus the absence of breaking in setr may be explained as a result of early syncope after -tr- (according to B. Hesselman). The words sw. sate 'haystack' and icel. sæti (to germ. *sit-, pret. ''sat- 'to sit') show that haystacks have been imagined as sitting. Presumably sater 'forest-meadow' was a place where haystacks, not people, sat.
