Weakly and fully nonlinear short-crested waves near the standing-wave limit are investigated. We clarify the relation between a standing wave solution and a standing-wave limit solution of the short-crested wave analytically and numerically. It is found that the short-crested wave cannot be continued analytically into the standing wave because of harmonic resonances.
