letter is lerja (revisited)

lerja = letter (noun) (some things Google found for "lerja: an uncommon term; a rare last name; Skyd Di Lerja is a song title by Norwegian pop singer Hans Petter Hansen; user names; similar word kirja means the noun work in Indonesian

Word derivation for "letter" (of the alphabet) :
Basque = letra, Finnish = kirjain
Miresua = lerja

This is the word for a letter of the alphabet, not a letter delivered by the post office. My previous word for letter was reilka, which a a bit of a mishmash although it was a valid alphabetic mix for Miresua. For my new word, I wanted to use the J from the Finnish word. In Miresua J, as in Finnish, is pronounced like Y.

This Miresua conlang word has been changed. The word for letter is now lerain.
