devil is peraulo

peraulo = devil (noun) (some things Google found for "peraulo": a very rare term; an uncommon last name; means something in Italian or a language spoken in Languedoc; bad OCR or misspelling of Latin word "peracto" which means "to carry through, complete, or accomplish")

Word derivation for "devil" :
Basque = deabru, Finnish = paholainen (paholai)
Miresua = peraulo

Finnish has a several words for devil. This word, paholainen, is the most proper and least profane word.

When this word is used as a swearword in Miresua, it'll be a mild one. Such as in "What the devil?".

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for devil is now depahun.

My Miresua word "peraulo" starts with the same three letters as another, stronger, Finnish swearword which translates as "Devil"...
