mouse is sigi (revisited)

sigi = mouse (creature) (noun) (some things Google found for "sigi": a common term; a masculine first name which can be short for Siegfried or Siegmund; a German feminine first name that can be short for Sieglinde; in the Völsung Cycle of Norse mythology Sigi is said to be one of the sons of Odin; SIGI is the NASDAQ stock symbol for Selective Insurance Group; SIGI is an acronym for Space Integrated GPS/INS which is an Inertial Navigation Unit to control and stabilize spacecraft; SIGI is an acronym for Sisterhood Is Global Institute; SIGI stands for Social Institutions and Gender Index; SIGI is an acronym for System for Interactive Guidance and Information; the name of cities in South Korea, Indonesia, Pakistan, Turkey, Tanzania, Sierra Leone and Ethiopia)

Word derivation for "mouse" :
Basque = sagu, Finnish = hiiri
Miresua = sigi

My previous Miresua word for mouse was sahi. There was nothing wrong with that word, but it was too close in pronunciation to my new word for pig which is sarri.

This word is a word in the conlang language of Miresua. My definition is not in any way intended to be a comment about people or things named sigi.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for mouse is now higu.
