Proto-Germanic edit

Etymology edit

From Proto-Indo-European *(s)tewg- (to shock, butt, impact). The geminate -kk- is assumed based on *stukkaz (stick) (whence Old English stocc, Old Norse stokkr). However, if an etymological connection does not exist, then the form *stukją is also possible, in which case the geminate might have arisen in North and West Germanic due to the following -j- (see w:West Germanic gemination).
