squirrel is onartxa

onartxa = squirrel (animal) (noun) (some things Google found for "onartxa": a very rare term: did not match any documents)

Word derivation for "squirrel" (animal):
Basque = urtxintxa, Finnish = orava
Miresua = onartxa

Amazing how putting a "tx" consonant combination in a seven-letter word helps make an unique word. The "tx" in Miresua, as in Basque, is pronounced like "ch".

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for squirrel is now orantxa.
