west is belsenä (revisited)

belsenä = west (noun) (some things Google found for "belsena": an uncommon to rare term; Belsana and Belsena Mills are towns in Pennsylvania, the name was changed or corrupted from "Belle Sena" (beautiful scene); there was a Belsena Coal Mining Company in the 1890s in New Jersey)

Word derivation for "west" :
Basque = mendebalde, Finnish = länsi
Miresua = belsenä

My previous Miresua conlang word for west was beldenä.  This is a small change to use closer to an equal share of letters from the Finnish word.   The Basque word for west is amazingly lengthy (ten letters!), but that's what it is.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for west is now mensi.
