Word derivation for "wood":
Basque = zur, Finnish = puu,
Miresua = pur
My previous Miresua word for "wood" was "uru". I've redone this word because I thought it was too similar to my word for bone (elu), and to have a monosyllabic word.
There were amazingly few words I could change this word to. My options were severely limited. I have rules limiting when I can start words with "r" due to Basque. Starting this word with two consonants was out due to Finnish. The vowel combination of "uu" is not allowed in Miresua.
