stint (v.)"to be sparing or frugal," 1722, earlier "to limit, restrain" (1510s), "cause to cease, put an end to" (mid-14c.), "cease, desist" (intransitive), c. 1200, from Old English styntan "to blunt, make dull, stupefy" probably originally "make short," from Proto-Germanic stuntijanan, from PIE steud-, extended form of root *(s)teu- (1) "to push, stick, knock, beat" (see steep (adj.)).
