feather is höma (revisited)

höma = feather (noun) (some things Google found for "homa" and "höma": a common term; HÖMA Service & Produktions GmbH of Germany; Homa is a religious practice in Hinduism and Buddhism and Jainism involving making offerings into a consecrated fire; Homa is a last name; Homa is a first name; Homa Pump Technology Inc.; Har Homa is a neighborhood located in southeastern Jerusalem; Homa is an extinct language of Sudan; "homa" means "red" in Chickasaw; "homa" means "human" is Esperanto; "homa" means "fever" in Swahili; Homa is the name of cities in Kenya, Turkey, Ethiopia, Denmark, Burma, Iran, Cameroon, and Papua New Guinea; there's a small town named Homa Hills in Wyoming)

Word derivation for "feather":
Basque = luma, Finnish = höyhen
Miresua = höma

I'm removing the no longer allowed ü (u umlaut). My previous Miresua conlang word for feather was hülna. I'm using the ö (o umlaut) and making the word shorter. Using the Basque word ending of ma, also makes the word more like the Spanish and Latin word pluma.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for feather is now luhön.
