rat is arrota (revisited)

arrota = rat (animal) (noun) (some things Google found for "arrota": an uncommon term; a last name; band Matanza from Brazil has a song called "Bebe, Arrota and Peida"; Arrota 26 is a Brazilian rock band; conjugations of the Italian verb "arrotare" which means "to sharpen, to grind, or to run over"; means "(you/he/she) burps or belches" in Portuguese; name of a city in Portugal)

Word derivation for "rat" :
Basque = arratoi, Finnish = rotta
Miresua = arrota

My previous word for rat was aroti. I'm allowing rr in Miresua, because I learned it appears in both Basque and Finnish.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for rat is now rato.
