snake is käge (revisited)

kägekäge = snake (creature) (noun) (some things Google found for "käge" and "kage": a common term; Kage and Käge are last names and user names; The Legend of Kage is a video game; Kage Baker is a SF writer; "kage" means "cake" in Danish; "kage" means "shadow" in Japanese when written in romaji; Kage is the name of a city in Nigeria and towns in Papua New Guinea and Sweden; Kage Obo is a city in Pakistan)

Word derivation for "snake":
Basque = suge, Finnish = käärme
Miresua = käge

My previous Miresua word for "snake" was "mägure". I decided to simplify this word.
