dove is kyshu

kyshu = dove (bird) (noun) (some things Google found for "kyshu": an uncommon to rare term; a misspelling of Kyushu which is the third largest of Japan's islands; user names; a character name in The Oasis...Starr's Tale; name of a World of Warcraft night elf druid game character)

Word derivation for "dove" :
Basque = uso, Finnish = kyyhky or kyyhkynen
Miresua = kyshu

Here's another bird word. The Finnish word for dove is one of the most intimidating looking words I've seen. But, given what bits I've learned about Finnish pronunciation, it sounds much nicer than it looks.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for "dove" is now "kyso".
