Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German twerc, from Old High German twerc, from Proto-Germanic *dwergaz. The apparent "double consonant shift", in which Middle High German t shifted to z, is irregular and very unusual, but an even more extreme "triple shift" can be seen in zwingen. Compare Dutch dwerg, English dwarf, Danish dværg.
