eye is selgi (revisited)

selgiselgi = eye (noun) (some things Google found for "selgi": an uncommon term; a unusual last name; a rare first name; user names; in Inari Sami which is an endangered language of northern Finland selgi means back; Selgi International Corp. of Panama and Miami, Florida for events and marketing; similarly named sel’gi are glacial ridges in the Karelian ASSR of Russia)

Word derivation for "eye" :
Basque = begi, Finnish = silmä
Miresua = selgi

My previous Miresua word for eye was bisä. I think my new word better resembles both the Basque word and the Finnish word. Also, I used the G from the Basque word. I don't get many Gs to work with.
