brass is melitsi (revisited)

melitsi = brass (metal alloy) (some things Google found for "melitsi": a rare term; an unusual last name that can be Greek; similarly named melitis is a medical term for inflammation of the cheek; similarly named Melitsina Village Hotel in the village of Kardamili in Southern Greece)

Word derivation for "brass" :
Basque = letoi, Finnish = messinki
Miresua = melitsi

My previous Miresua word for brass was meitso. This new word ends in "i", as do the Basque and Finnish words.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for brass is now mestoi.
