Extended form *str.g-. stork, from Old English storc, stork (probably
from the stiff movements of the bird), from Germanic *sturkaz. 2.
strut, from Old English strtian, to stand out stiffly, from Germanic
*strt-. (Watkins, ster-1)
In Alb. this extended zero-grade form *str.g- derives also
<shtërg> 'stork', through regular evolution of cluster /st/ > /sht/
and /r./ > ri > ër.
I must confess too that also in Albanian are many bird's names in
diminutive suffix -zë/-za: <pupëz, pupza> 'crested lark, turtle
dove', <shqitëz, shqitëza> 'swan', etc.
