Why can't it be stretch?

Rahul said: (Sep 9, 2018)  
In my point of view,

SHRINK means: To become smaller permanently.
EXPAND means: To extend something permanently.
STRETCH means: To extend something temporarily & then after sometime it gets back its own shape.

@Rahul.

Expand means - increase in all directions.
Shrink means - reduce in all directions.
Stretch means - increase linearly or in unidirectional or bidirectional but not in all directions.
