Pose Pose, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Posed}; p. pr. & vb. n. {Posing}.] [F. poser to place, to put, L. pausare to pause, in LL. also, to place, put, fr. L. pausa a pause, Gr. ?, fr. ? to make to cease, prob. akin to E. few. In compounds, this word appears corresponding to L. ponere to put, place, the substitution in French having been probably due to confusion of this word with L. positio position, fr. ponere. See {Few}, and cf. {Appose}, {Dispose}, {Oppose}, {Pause}, {Repose}, {Position}.] To place in an attitude or fixed position, for the sake of effect; to arrange the posture and drapery of (a person) in a studied manner; as, to pose a model for a picture; to pose a sitter for a portrait. [1913 Webster]
