- stipulate:  Tradition has it that the etymological notion underlying stipulate is an ancient custom of breaking a straw to seal a bargain. The word comes from the Latin verb stipulārī ‘bargain, demand’, and it has been speculated that this was derived from Latin stipula ‘straw’ (source also of English stubble ). The theory has not been conclusively demonstrated, but it makes a good story. Another possibility is some connection with Old Latin stipulus ‘firm’.
