I noticed that modern Romance languages don't have a specific word for the verb "to stand", or - you could say - don't consider the notion of standing to be a verb.
For example, in Spanish - you can say pararse, which means to stop yourself (from moving). Or you can say levantarse, which means to raise yourself (to a standing position). You can also say estar a pie which mean being on your feet.
I checked and it seems to also be the case for French and Italian.
Other languages do have a special word. English and German for example - (German Stehen). Hebrew has la'amod (לעמוד) which has the same root as the noun pillar (amud - עמוד). Not sure about other languages though.
