sparrow is txeparu

txeparu = sparrow (bird) (noun) (some things Google found for "txeparu": an unique term, did not match any documents)

Word derivation for "sparrow" :
Basque = txolarre, Finnish = varpunen
Miresua = txeparu

This word for sparrow was unique in Google, which is quite a feat, helped by the Basque tx consonant combination. In Miresua, as in Basque, tx is prounounced like ch. So txeparu would be pronounced like cheparu.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for "sparrow" is now "txuparne".
