Pushback gate #3 dfw released to taxi headed southwest on ground control cleared to runway 36R. Asked to monitor frequency for possible runway change. Overheard ground control tell another aircraft en route to 36R to hold short of STOL runway. Hearing this held short of inner (G) (STOL 36S-18S) and looked to south and saw turboprop twin on takeoff roll on STOL runway. Had been cleared to runway with no instruction to hold short of inner. Had I not hesitated and looked, I would have been headon to aircraft taking off. Query to ground controller, said he had not directed us to hold short inner taxiway. Potential for disaster with aircraft taking off on STOL runway into path of taxiing aircraft southbound on inner. Dfw ramp to inner at taxiway 24 intersection with inner (G) (STOL 18S-36S). Aircraft takeoff north 36S.

Title: LGT ACR CLEARED TO RWY 36R VIA INNER TXWY NOT INSTRUCTED TO HOLD SHORT OF STOL 36 18S. PLT OVERHEARD GND CTL CREW INSTRUCTIONS TO HOLD SHORT TO ANOTHER ACFT. LGT HELD ALSO AS TWIN TURBOPROP DEPARTED STOL RWY 36S.
Narrative: PUSHBACK GATE #3 DFW RELEASED TO TAXI HEADED SW ON GND CTL CLRED TO RWY 36R. ASKED TO MONITOR FREQ FOR POSSIBLE RWY CHANGE. OVERHEARD GND CTL TELL ANOTHER ACFT ENRTE TO 36R TO HOLD SHORT OF STOL RWY. HEARING THIS HELD SHORT OF INNER (G) (STOL 36S-18S) AND LOOKED TO SOUTH AND SAW TURBOPROP TWIN ON TKOF ROLL ON STOL RWY. HAD BEEN CLRED TO RWY WITH NO INSTRUCTION TO HOLD SHORT OF INNER. HAD I NOT HESITATED AND LOOKED, I WOULD HAVE BEEN HEADON TO ACFT TAKING OFF. QUERY TO GND CTLR, SAID HE HAD NOT DIRECTED US TO HOLD SHORT INNER TXWY. POTENTIAL FOR DISASTER WITH ACFT TAKING OFF ON STOL RWY INTO PATH OF TAXIING ACFT SBND ON INNER. DFW RAMP TO INNER AT TXWY 24 INTXN WITH INNER (G) (STOL 18S-36S). ACFT TKOF NORTH 36S.
