    Examples/ definitions with source references

    Stand someone something

    transitive ​informal old-fashioned to buy something for someone, especially food or drink

    stand someone something:

    I’ll stand you a cup of coffee if you’ve no money.“

    to pay the cost of (a treat) : pay for I'll stand you a dinner stand drinks“

    The verb stand, as used here is defined this way by the OED: “To bear the expense of, make a present of, pay for (a treat); to put up or make a present of (a sum of money), esp. as part of a larger amount sought.” The first citation is from Dickens, Sketches by Boz (1836): ” Mr. Augustus Cooper..‘stood’ considerable quantities of spirits and water.” The quotations marks indicate recent coinage. The dictionary also has this 1890 quote from Lippincott’s Monthly Magazine: “I’ll stand you a dinner.”
