start at English => English (English Etymology) Of Explained:

O.E. *steortian, *stiertan, variants of styrtan "to leap up" (related to starian "to stare"), from P.Gmc. *start-. From "move or spring suddenly," sense evolved 14c. to "awaken suddenly, flinch or recoil in alarm," and 1666 to "cause to begin acting or operating." Meaning "begin to move, leave, depart" is from 1821. The connection is probably from sporting senses. ///

START at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Negotiations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union aimed at reducing those countries' nuclear arsenals and delivery systems. Two sets of negotiations (1982-83, 1985-91) concluded in an agreement signed by G. Bush and M. Gorbachev committing the Soviet Union to a reduction from 11,000 to 8,000 nuclear weapons, and the U.S. to a reduction from 12,000 to 10,000. After the Soviet Union's collapse (1991), a supplementary agreement (1992) obligated Ukraine, Belarus, and Kazakstan to either destroy the nuclear weapons on their soil or give them to Russia. Today, U.S. support for developing antimissile defenses threatens new complications for the arms control regime. See also SALT.
