lake is jaru (revisited)

jaru = lake (noun) (some things Google found for "jaru": an uncommon term; JA-RU toy company; user names; Jaru Associates Inc. of State College, PA is a photocopying and printing business; Jaru Pottery of California; an unusual last name; an unusual first name; means "sour" in Aymara, a language related to Quechua; means "broom" in Pashto (transliterated); name of cities in Afghanistan, Brazil, and Iran)

Word derivation for "lake" :
Basque = laku, Finnish = järvi
Miresua = jaru

My previous Miresua word for lake was jirka. I think jirka looked too much like jerk. Also I'm simplifying this word.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. I'm using aintzira as the Basque word. The word for lake is now ainäri.
