fat is lida (revisited)

lida = fat (adjective) (some things Google found for "lida": a very common term; a feminine first name; a last name; Lida Daidaihua slimming capsules; The LIDA project experimental theater; North Lida and South Lida Lakes in Minnesota; Lida Lake Estates in Rochelle, Illinois; means "to suffer" in Swedish; means "work" in Portuguese; name of cities in Belarus, China, Philippines, Indonesia, United States, Democratic Republic of the Congo, India and Sweden)

Word derivation for "fat" (adjective) :
Basque = lodi, Finnish = lihava
Miresua = lida

My previous word for fat was loiha. I'm changing this word because neither the Basque or the Finnish word had a vowel combination. Also I didn't like that loiha looked like the Finnish word for thin which is laiha.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for fat (adjective) is now lova.
