tree is pauzu (revisited)

pauzu = tree (noun) (some things Google found for "pauzu": an uncommon to common term; Zapolnyaya pauzu is a Russian book by Alla Demidova; pauzu appears on numerous Czech and other Eastern European language web pages, maybe it's related to similar word pauza which means pause or break or intermission in Croatian, Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Romanina, Russian (transliterated), Serbian, and Slovak)

Word derivation for "tree" :
Basque = zuhaitz, Finnish = puu
Miresua = pauzu

My previous word for tree was auzu. I'm modifying this Miresua conlang word to begin with a consonant, like the Basque and Finnish words. In addition, I'm making it similar to my Miresua word for wood which is pur.

Interestingly, in Finnish puu is the word for tree AND wood or timber.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for tree is now puiz.
