Whatever you may believe about Albanian, it's
certain that t>s before stops in many IE languages.
The proto-form has to be based on the outcomes, but
the existence of s in them doesn't guarantee that s
existed in the proto-form.

The cluster dtr was simplified to dr in many
languages and the irregular paradigm split in meaning:

u_dtèró+s u_dtr(e)+ 'outer, sticking out, belly'

u_dtèryó+s u_dtri+ 'in the belly, internal organ'


u_dtèró+s u_dtr(e)+ > u_ttèró+s u_dr(e)+ >

u_ttèró+s u_ttr(e)+ & u_dèró+s u_dr(e)+

each new paradigm with a particular meaning.

Don't pick lemons.
