roof is talto

taltotalto = roof (noun) (some things Google found for "talto": an uncommon term; an unusual last name; O Poraner Talto Bhai is a Bangla song title (what it translates to, I don't know); in Hungarian tradition similar Táltos is a human being similar to a shaman; Taltos is the title of books by Steven Brust and Anne Rice; Talto-Kurgan (a.k.a. Taldykorgan) is a city in Kazakhstan; Talto is the name of places in South Korea and Guinea-Bissau)

Word derivation for "roof" :
Basque = teilatu, Finnish = katto
Miresua = talto

In Basque teila means roof tile, shingle. Teilatu also means tile roof.

I like that in Spanish similar word alto means high.
