I asked a duplicated question in another SE site. A native speaker left the following comment:
It is somewhat of a duplicate, but the answer to this question, while given in the accepted answer to the other question, is just barely mentioned and could stand emphasizing in that or another answer.
I found this bolded use very peculiar, so I did a little search in Google Books. However, almost all examples are fake ones, like ".. stand, emphasizing ..", ".. took a stand emphasizing ..", etc.
Except for only this one:
A few points brought out by Dr. Smith in my opinion will stand emphasizing: First. A constant and even flow of the gases. Second. Warm gases.
Is this a rarely used turn of phrase?
Does stand here mean 'to remain valid, effective, or unaltered', as in 'the agreement stands' or 'be in a specified state or condition', as in 'I stand corrected'?
And how to assess the syntactic function of 'emphasizing' here, a non-finite clause or a complement?
