long is päle

päle = long (adjective) (some things Google found for "päle" and "pale": a common term; päle means "over" in Veps or Vepsian; Pale is a last name; pale means "light in color" or "one of the stakes of a palisade" or "a territory having certain bounds" in English; pale means "down" in Croatian; pale means "cheek, visage" in Estonian; pale means "blade" in French; pale means "shovels" in Italian; Pale is the name of cities in India, Tanzania, Burma, Cuba, Guinea, Italy, Hungary, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Albania, Serbia & Montenegro, and United Kingdom)

Word derivation for "long" :
Basque = luze, Finnish = pitkä (long and tall)
Miresua = päle

My Miresua word päle is not pronounced as pale is in English. The ä (a umlaut) is pronounced as a in cat. The final e is not silent, it is pronounced like e in bed.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for "long" is now "päze".
