ten is mykar (revisited)

mykar = ten (number) (adjective) (some things Google found for "mykar": an uncommon to rare term; Mykar is the name of a used car dealer in NSW, Australia; an unusual last name; an rare masculine first name; user names; a World of Warcraft character)

Word derivation for "ten"
Basque = hamar, Finnish = kymmenen
Miresua = mykar

My previous Miresua conlang word for ten was myknar. I dropped the N. That KN consonant combination was too odd. This makes my Miresua word less than average length of the Basque and the Finnish words, but that's okay. The Basque word for ten is also five letters long.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for ten is now hamen.
