violet is tolire (revisited)

tolire = violet (or purple) (color) (adjective) (some things Google found for "tolire": an uncommon to rare term; Tolire lake in Ternate, North Maluku, Indonesia; a last name in Papua New Guinea)

Word derivation for "violet" or "purple":
Basque = more, Finnish = violetti
Miresua = tolire

My previous Miresua conlang word for purple was orile. As neither of my source words started with a vowel, I decided to change this word.

After completing this write-up, I realized that this word starts with the same two letters as my word for purple in Lhaesine (my other conlang) which is "toiza". Maybe I'm influencing myself.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for violet is now voreti.
