cold is hyltä (revisited)

hyltä = cold (adjective) (some things Google found for "hylta": an uncommon term; an unusual last name; The Hylta Dance is an early 17th century trowie song from Scotland's Shetland Islands; name of a handful of small cities and towns in Sweden and Finland)

Word derivation for "cold":
Basque = hotz, Finnish = kylmä
Miresua = hyltä

My previous Miresua conlang word for cold was zylt. That was an incoherent mix of the Basque and Finnish words. I decided to redo this word.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed, again. The word for cold is now holmä.

Following :) I like how your posts are small and dedicated, at least as far back in the archives as I've looked. It makes it much more of a joy to read.
