green is irbe (revisited)

irbe = green (color) (adjective) (some things Google found for "irbe": a common term; an uncommon last name, notably Arturs Irbe a former Soviet and Latvian ice hockey goaltender; user names; Irbe Strait in Latvia; means partridge in Latvian)

Word derivation for "green" :
Basque = berde, Finnish = vihreä
Miresua = irbe

My previous Miresua conlang word for green was irebä. After much thought, I decided to modify this word. This change forces me to change the title of my seldom updated Miresua grammer blog. That irbe will become irbea when used with the definite article was a deciding factor.

By the way, this word breaks one of my rules, but for it I'll make an exception. When both the Basque and the Finnish words start with a consonant, the Miresua word should start with a consonant.

I like this word because it's somewhat similar to herb, and herbs are green.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for green is now bereä.
