Etymology of 'Understanding'
Old English understandincge "comprehension," from understand: Old English understandan "comprehend, grasp the idea of," probably literally "stand in the midst of," from under + standan "to stand". If this is the meaning, the under is not the usual word meaning "beneath," but from Old English under, from PIE *nter- "between, among" (cf. Sanskrit antar "among, between," Latin inter "between, among," Greek entera "intestines;").
