Abstract: (Forstaaelse - noun; Forstand - noun; forstaae - verb). The word 'Forstaaelse' is derived from the Old Danish 'forstande', which is borrowed from the Middle Low German 'vorstan', from the Old Saxon 'farstandan'. It is cognate with the English word "understanding," which was originally the act of standing under something in order to observe it. By extension, it is the act, relation or condition of comprehending the meaning of a thing, like a book or natural phenomenon. It can also have the connotation of sympathizing with a person, or harmonizing, as between different political entities.
