dry is kevor (revisited)

kevor = dry (adjective) (some things Google found for "kevor": an uncommon term; user names; an unusual last name; Kevor-Curette is a single use surgical instrument; part of the name of a computer virus; a rare masculine first name; name of a male character in fantasy book series Wars of Light and Shadow by Janny Wurts)

Word derivation for "dry":
Basque = lehor, Finnish = kuiva
Miresua = kevor

My previous Miresua conlang word for "dry" was "hikur". I changed this word to use the V from the Finnish word. Another adjustment to spread out my use of the letters available, and to make the words a bit more like their Basque and Finnish source words.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for dry is now kuhor.

Interesting combo of languages, good luck with it.
By the way, do you know of a list of Basque words available anywhere on the internet? I need this for a FREE app I am working on.
I dont want words with their english definitions or whatever, just a list of all (or as many as possible) Basque words.
