yellow is heli (revisited)

heliheli = yellow (color) (adjective) (some things Google found for "heli": a very common term; slang for helicopter such as in heli-skiing and radio-control model helicopters; a last name; a Finnish and Estonian feminine first name which is a short form of Helena; a masculine name in the Bible; means "salt water, brine" in Welsh; similar Helios is the personification of the sun in Greek mythology; the name of cities in China)

Word derivation for "yellow" :
Basque = hori, Finnish = keltainen (kelta)
Miresua = heli

My previous Miresua conlang word for yellow was kohai. I decided to simplify this word.

When mixing up the letters from the Basque and Finnish words, I ignored the -inen adjective ending from the Finnish word.
