In combinatorics there is a well-known duality between non-nesting and non-crossing objects. In algebra there are many objects which are {\it {standard}}, for example, standard Young tableaux, standard monomials, and standard bitableaux. We adopt a point of view that these standard objects are really non-nesting, and we find their non-crossing counterparts.
Keywords: Young symmetrizer, Specht module, Weyl module, standard Young tableaux, standard monomials, standard bitableaux, non-crossing tableaux, non-crossing monomials, non-crossing bitableaux
