turkey is inkailka

inkailka = turkey (noun) (some things Google found for "inkailka": a very rare, nearly unique term; appears in gobbledygook of a geographic display page; similar Ikaika (which means strong in Hawaiian) is a rare masculine name)

Word derivation for "turkey" :
Basque = indioilar, Finnish = kalkkuna
Miresua = inkailka

This is the word for the large bird that Americans traditionally eat for Thanksgiving dinner. Not the Eurasian country.

The Basque word appears to be a compound word meaning indi- (from America) + oilar (rooster, cock). My Miresua word is a scramble of letters.

This Miresua word has been changed. The word for turkey is now inkalkur.
