So what?

bardza means stork in Romanian
bardha means white in Albanian

ShopIrla means lizzard in Romanian
Shapi means an illness-name in Albanian

This related to different meanings

Next related to the phonetism burta cannot be directly from bark
etc...

BUT you have applied again the 'theory of the exact meanings and
exact phonetisms' i.e. the theory 'of Albanians loans in Romanian'
doesn't matter how many counterexamples we have here.

Next you tell me that from 'coverlet' to 'clothes' is a high
sematic distance...

Correct,more probable the *strh3-eh1-.
But so what? a 'clothes' word cannot be derived from the root *
sterh3-?

Correct Albanian shtr cannot be from Slavic str- at least we agree
here:


Now:
ON THE OTHER HAND:
Albanian shtroj& is from PAlb */STRA:...YA/ 'coverlet'
and the Romanian word is /STRAY/ 'clothes'

ONLY A PHONETIC COINCIDENCE, ISN'T IT?

As in the case of
Albanian PUTH that is from PAlb /PUTSA/ 'to kiss, to fuck'
and the Romanian word is /PUTSA/ 'small penis'

AGAIN ONLY A PHONETIC COINCIDENCE, ISN'T IT?
