brown is rarke (revisited)

rarke = brown (color) (adjective) (some things Google found for "rarke": an uncommon term; title of a bhangra (Punjabi dance music) song by Nirmal Sidhu and Sudesh Kumari; user names; an unusual last name; RARKE is a navigation waypoint in New Mexico)

Word derivation for "brown" :
Basque = marroi, Finnish = ruskea
Miresua = rarke

My previous Miresua conlang word for brown was reisma.

The new word ends in E so that when used with the definite article, the, rarke becomes rarkea, and it ends like the Finnish word.

By the way, Basque doesn't believe in starting words with the letter R. Borrowed R words begin with arr- or err- in Basque. Miresua can start words with R because Finnish does, but I don't have all that many words that do.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for brown is now rumare.
