EtymologyEdit

German Low German and Central German form of stopfen (to stuff, to plug). As in Dutch stoppen, the meaning "to stop" is figurative (water flow being stopped by plugging). Only in this figurative meaning has the northern form been adopted into standard German proper, probably under the reinforcing influence of English stop.
