glass is seila (revisited)

seila = glass (noun) (some things Google found for "seila": an uncommon term; a feminine first name suggested to be that of Jephthah's daughter in the Bible; a last name; the SEILA Programme in Cambodia involves decentralisation; The Seila Pyramid is a small step pyramid in ruins in Northern Egypt; Seila FM is an Indonesian ethnic radio station; the name of cities in Egypt (also known as Silah) and Ivory Coast)

Word derivation for "glass" :
Basque = beira, Finnish = lasi
Miresua = seila

My previous Miresua conlang word for glass was seiba. That word not only looked like the Basque word, it also took more letters from the Basque word. The new word contains all the letters from the Finnish word, although in a scrambled form.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for glass is now laire.
