Ishidate ( 石立て ) is an old Japanese go term literally meaning setting up stones or the setup of the stones.
Bob McGuigan: I wouldn't call it a synonym for fuseki, but setup seems OK, as does kamae as a synonym. Kamae also has the sense of structure, which seems appropriate in this case. If the word "framework" weren't already taken as a translation of moyou I might want to use framework for kamae.
This example comes from http://www2.tokai.or.jp/tuta/nisikyoku.html . The commentary states:
Bill: Does ishidate refer just to , or to - ?
"The word ishidate (Jowa's) for fuseki means 'establishment of groups'. (...) The term fuseki (lit. spreading out of stones) could be seen as more descriptive of how to achieve (Shuei's) new opening style. (...) By Taisho times - the following decade - the term fuseki took over and by Showa times (1926) it had ousted its rival."
