  • The old Russian word STRAWBERRY meant a berry, the fruits of which are low inclined to the ground, spread along it. Then C was replaced by K, and the berry received the modern name, but the etymology is visible when morphologically parsing the word:

    EARTH-NIK-A, where NIK-suffix denoting the feminine gender.

  • Due to the fact that the berries are close to the ground
